Tevano Systems Holdings Inc. (CSE: TEVO) (“Tevano”, or the “Company”), announced today the deployment of multiple Health Shield™ fever detection and thermal scanning devices at transport equipment design and manufacturer, K-Line Trailers (K-Line).
BC-based K-Line has been in operation for over two decades and with a workforce of over 170 people, it designs and manufactures custom transport equipment including Dump Bodies, Low-beds and Multi-axle Heavy Haul Trailers, Side and End Dump Trailers, Specialty Transport Trailers, Wind Blade Trailers, and Mining Equipment for use throughout the world.
The company deployed Health Shield™ devices across its entire administration and manufacturing campus to add a layer of protection for employees and to increase workplace safety standards. Soon after the Health Shield™ beta trial implementation, a K-Line employee entering the facility was scanned and a fever was detected. A subsequent clinical test confirmed the employee was positive for COVID-19. The employee was able to quarantine, therefore reducing the risk of infecting other team members and causing operations to face a potential shutdown.
“Having had Tevano’s Health Shield™ actually stop an infected employee from entering the workplace and likely infecting others, we are keenly aware of the value of the technology to the safety and sustainability of our people and operations,” said Rob Hinze, K-Line Operations Manager. “With every day of a forced closure potentially costing hundreds of thousands of dollars, it’s become a very important piece of safeguarding equipment for us. We believe the devices will provide exceptional utility for us in the future as well given the ongoing software development we’re seeing from Tevano, with new functions being added such as facial recognition to replace time-cards, contact tracing functionality, etc.”
“Safeguarding cash-flow, liability, health of employees and ensuring commercial operations aren’t at risk of shutdown through viral spread has become a rapidly increasing priority for businesses across industry sectors,” added David Bajwa, Tevano CEO. “We’re very fortunate to be working with a growing number of progressive business leaders, such as those at K-Line, who are taking strong, proactive steps to ensure they’re able to maintain healthy and productive workplaces.”
Using thermal imaging, Health Shield™ is able to carry out split second temperature sensing of visitors with near perfect accuracy. AI-powered facial detection to ensure face mask compliance and alerting options including SMS, localized alarms, detailed on screen messaging and turnstile lockdown, can be customized by operators to ensure specific safety protocols are met and backed up by recorded data.
Tevano is the developer of Health Shield™, an AI-driven electronic device that provides instant body temperature scanning and notifies users if they need to wear a face mask. Health Shield™ devices can be placed at all entrances that patrons and/or employees use to gain access to buildings. The Health Shield™ device is supported by a cloud software solution that can be used to manage multiple devices and provide detailed reporting and analysis. Tevano benefits from an equity-based relationship with kiosk and screen-based technology leader, Nevatronix. Management believes the relationship provides Tevano with access to highly robust supply chains and gives the company a unique capacity to react to and service evolving commercial markets for health tracking technologies.
