Virtual Access Control – 5 Tips for Creating a Security Manager’s Dream Experience
July 7, 2021
Think about a typical construction site. It has multiple stories with horizontal and vertical spaces. It extends high above the ground and below ground. Almost every day, it’s growing and changing thanks to the different crews of workers coming and going. And, it has multiple access points that require monitoring, which sometimes go without.
For a job site Security Manager (or any project stakeholder), having the right Access Control System in place is what separates a dream experience from a potential nightmare.
5 Tips for Creating Your Best Access Control System:
To effectively manage construction site access, your system needs to be designed to manage location access in areas with and without physical barriers. Physical barriers like turnstiles, secure doors, and gates aren’t enough.
Avoid locally managed dependent systems. They’re known to cause operational issues and costly downtime bottlenecks during system reboots. Most require uninterrupted WIFI or steady CAT5 connection and frequent software updates.
Save time and avoid unnecessary stress by streamlining your registration data, badging process, access control, and data collection in one centralized workforce database solution. A more accessible site directory of everyone on your job site combined with real-time monitoring means better workforce visibility and management day-by-day.
Enable flexible and secure zone access for enhanced safety and security. By establishing zones on your job site within a cloud-based platform, you can see real-time attendance and monitor activity across your entire project from virtually anywhere, any time.
Give your safety and security teams the ability to set custom safety alerts. Key Person Alerts via text message can inform you if certain people are showing up on-site or not within certain timeframes. Unauthorized Person Alerts can immediately inform you of people that shouldn’t be in certain areas on your jobsite.
