Minimise Covid-19 infection at your organisation with wristbands


A wristband that allows you to identify at a glance which people have been temperature screened for Covid-19 (minimising risk of anyone accidentally being missed by screening or deliberately avoiding screening).

IDCBand – South Africa’s leading wristband supplier – has cost-effective access control wristbands which are available immediately. These bands are non-transferable. They have a tamper-evident seal and are water and tear resistant. Tyvek can be recycled with HDPE waste streams.

The use of these wristbands can lead to a reduction in the spread of the Covid-19 virus within the organisation, increase attendance, save the organisation money in the long run and ultimately save lives due to less spread outside of the organisation.

How this works:

1) Upon arrival, all employees/learners/contractors/members of your organisation should be tested to check for high temperatures.

2) Those who have high temperatures should be denied access and referred to medical professionals/sent home – or as per your organisation’s directives

3) Those with normal temperatures will be given a wristband to indicate that they have been temperature screened and cleared for that day. A different colour band should be used for each day (we have over 20 colours to choose from).

It’s that simple!

Security/managers/teachers/supervisors can then easily check at a glance to see who has been screened that day. This can reduce the chance of anyone slipping through the net (with screening) and also help prevent anyone deliberately avoiding being screened (due to being sick and wishing to continue to work/attend or simply not wishing to be tested). If necessary, different wristbands can be used for different departments, divisions and work roles.
