Thermal Imaging Screening Systems Installed at Vale Park

4 June 2020

The IPM Group have this week installed new technology at Vale Park to assist the club in managing the safe return of players and members of staff to work.

Entrants arriving through the main reception can be scanned via new thermal imaging technology provided by the IPM Group. This will act as an early warning detection system to alert key staff of anyone entering the premises with an elevated temperature. Notifications will then be instantly distributed to key staff. 

IPM Group Managing Director Rick Bailey said 'We are currently in discussions with numerous football clubs, looking at many options to assist in managing the safe return of players and staff to work. We are delighted to be supporting Port Vale Football Club and look forward to building on our relationship further. We have received a large amount of interest in our products in recent few weeks and have created a 6 step approach to assist businesses in all industries, with various initiatives and products that can assist in ensuring a safe return to work'.

'The use of this technology is invaluable as a first stage alert to protect against Covid-19 whilst at the same time allowing screening against other Immuno-suppressive illnesses.  It has been welcomed with open arms by medical and performance staff within the clubs we have currently spoken to'.

Port Vale FC Safety Officer John Rutherford said: “We wanted to get something in place to reassure all coaching staff, players, employees, volunteers and visitors, and IPM have quickly provided the technology to assist us in this aim”.

With the current Covid-19 pandemic situation making everyday life within football clubs very difficult, the IPM Group have brought together experts from the footballing world, safety industry, and technology innovators to design a range of products and services which will assist clubs to return to as near normal operational state as possible, whilst safeguarding playing staff, and staff working in other areas.
