Influence Social Distancing – Part 5 – Government Guidelines to encourage the switch to more Hygienic Non-Contact solutions
The Government have announced that companies should re-evaluate their internal infrastructures to keep their workforce safe by replacing the use of physical hardware that requires the employees to touch.
This manual method can easily be swapped for a Non- Contact solution which is why we have been inundated by many of our clients for assistance.
There are many affordable ways in which companies can comply or assist in coping with social distancing measures more easily.
Attendance clocking terminals…
Convert to Proximity and give staff members their own individual card/fob or even move to facial biometrics for Non-Contact compliance per staff member.
- Finger Biometrics
Replace with non-contact facial recognition terminals which are more hygienic, in most cases 4 x faster for registration, more reliable, less fuss and more appealing and welcomed by users.
Most popular solution by far over the last few years for companies wanting a speedy, non fuss, biometric solution to stop “Buddy Punching”. With the emphasis on Speed, this technology will undoubtedly reduce queues at the clocking point to help with the 2 metre social distance ruling.
Access Control – Doors, Turnstiles, Barriers, Gates…
- Card Reader IN and Press to Exit Button OUT
Replace the press to exit button with an additional card reader. All access panels have this option at no extra charge which gives you the added benefit of recording flow of traffic in the event of a security breach or better detect who was in what area and when in case of an incident.
- Press to Exit Button
Replace with a non-contact Exit button, this in many cases can work out more money than adding an additional card reader with much less benefits but still a good option.
- Automatic door sensors
Your manual door pull handles can be replaced with an automated door opening system. Upon a valid entry/exit request the access panel will send a command to open the doors automatically so that your workforce don’t have to touch door handles, making the workplace a more hygienic environment.
Replace other solutions with the more advanced Non-Contact Face option for either side of the doors.
