Respond to legislation
MSite saves us considerable time
in reporting and allows our on-site project team
to focus on managing projects on site,
while giving our head office instant
visibility to all the data needed in real time.
From day one the MSite platform has allowed us to improve and simplify our on-boarding process, which has meant we can focus on delivering great results for our clients. Throughout deployment and implementation, Human Recognition Systems have been great to work with and I now count them as one of our true partners.
Using MSite alongside the CSCS cards has saved us time by
simplifying the process for workers arriving at the site each day.
Usage of a standard biometric system
across our business, coupled with a physical
turnstile barrier, really allows us to ensure
the right people are coming onto our sites.
Adopting a system with the dependability and accuracy
of MSite allows us to focus more on the building work itself,
with the software able to create site reports and the
biometric turnstile unfailingly controlling access to the site.

    Product FAQs

    How can MSite support construction sites in the wake of COVI19, helping to keep sites open and safe?

    The MSite Workforce App immediately addresses several of the challenges presented by COVID19 at a site level. Using the biometric capabilities of smartphones, businesses can enable contactless workforce access control and sign-in points across multiple sites, checked and verified against the worker’s credentials.

    Functions within the MSite Workforce App that specifically focus on improving health and safety include social distancing reporting and contact tracing, a fresh approach to contact-free biometric site entry and direct-to-worker notifications.

     

    What are direct-to-worker notifications?

    The beauty of having the MSite Workforce App on every workers’ smartphone is that it enables a completely new way to communicate with the workforce, bridging the ‘communications void’ between principal contractors and the frontline construction workforce.  By allowing site teams and  head office staff to send messages from the MSite system to the MSite Workforce App, it can deliver notifications to targeted groups of the workforce, or the entire workforce, in a matter of minutes.

    Furthermore, it can mandate that workers must respond (selecting from multiple choice responses), and has the option to restrict access for those who have not responded, so they must acknowledge the message, thereby creating a digital footprint that they have read the message, and of their response. Messages can be scheduled in advance or sent instantly, providing strong and reliable construction site communications.

    How can the MSite Workforce App help to reduce the spread of COVID19 on construction sites?

    The MSite Workforce App uses bluetooth technology to monitor social proximity between App users. Worker proximity reports go to supervisors, so they can monitor any breaches in social distancing on their construction site. In the event that a worker tests positive for COVID19, the contact tracing functionality enables supervisors to quickly identify who that worker has been in close proximity to, and for how long. Affected workers can be notified to self-isolate, while the majority of the workforce can remain operational.

    How does the contactless biometric access system work?

    Instead of jumping on the facial recognition camera band wagon, the MSite Workforce App takes a fresh approach to contactless site entry. It uses the existing biometric capabilities of each site worker’s smartphone for proof of identity, which is linked to the worker’s MSite profile to verify their site credentials and permissions.

    The software harnesses the £millions invested by smartphone companies in developing cutting edge, highly reliable biometric functionality; facial recognition and fingerprint tech that is so accurate and trusted that millions of people worldwide use it to verify online banking and contactless payments.

    Why use site access control systems?

    In construction, we often focus on the detail. What is best for the individual site and project – site access control systems and construction site security turnstiles are commonly the first practical issue that clients look for us to solve and help them with. But the use of our technology to manage your workers’ access to site does not have to stop there. We can help with more. Often it pays to step back and look at the bigger picture for your construction company at a national level. Forget the individual site and project for a moment – what is best for all sites, all tasks and all workers when it comes to safely and efficiently managing them? The answer is simple. Manage your workforce digitally and secure everything in one online system, across the stages of employee ID Checks, Online Inductions and Training, and Access Control and Attendance (incorporating construction site security turnstiles).  MSite provides this, with a full workforce management solution and one of the world’s leading site access control systems. With ALL sites and employees working from the same source, you can rely on a number of things: Consistent process for recruitment and screening, in terms of ensuring all workers are who they say they are and have a Right to Work in the UK. Consistent onboarding, with workers completing one set of inductions, training and enrolment valid for multiple site visits. Consistent workforce data, with restricted individuals blocked from sites if they are already blocked from entering one, or if their skills and training are not up to date. Consistent reports about your workers, all sent to head office measuring the same things in the same format. Choose a single way to solve all your workforce management issues. A single way to get everyone on site and working safely in the most cost-effective and efficient way possible. One way to ensure all workers are compliant, safe and secure.

    What are 5 tips for choosing a biometric access system?

    I have been on a number of site and client visits in the last month and a number of issues keep coming up. So here are my 5 top tips for Construction companies looking at Biometric Access Control systems for their sites:  Look at the bigger picture These systems aren’t just about sticking a turnstile on the entrance of your site to improve security. The real value comes from the software. Access control systems built specifically for the Construction industry such as MSite allows sites to automate the production of key reports to save significant amounts of manual administration collating site performance data for client reporting and ensure adherence to company policies on site. There are many systems that offer the very basics of a turnstile with access and attendance reporting, but if you are comparing quotes, make sure you are comparing like for like against your needs. Know your biometrics With the above in mind don’t get carried away selecting a system just because it uses the fanciest sounding biometric technology to access your site. Whilst it is an important point there are other key factors which should determine your decision. Ask yourself, is face recognition or vein recognition really necessary for your site? Not only may this result in unnecessary spend, but some biometric technologies just aren’t suited for the Construction environment. Dust, dirt and being exposed to the elements can really impact their robustness and it’s not uncommon for bricklayers to struggle scanning their fingerprints! Although its been around for a few years hand geometry readers are one of the more proven biometric technologies used in the industry – this was the main technology used on the London 2012 Olympic Park site to manage the access for over 100,000 operatives. Keep it consistent It is quite common for different sites of the same Construction Contractor to select different access control systems. Whilst at site level this may not seem much of an issue, at a centralised level it can make reporting on site performance across a region or across a cluster of sites a challenge – with different systems capturing different levels of information about their site, in different report formats. Standardisation across the sites is key and allows for a clear, cumulative view of KPIs across multiple sites without the headache of trying to compare inconsistent information. Realise the benefit of a multi-site system Following on from the above point of standardising the approach across your sites, systems such as MSite offer a ‘smart’ and true multi-site capability to save more time on the sites through eliminating the inefficiencies of re-entering operative details each time they go to a new site. Enrol an operative once on MSite and then there is no need to re-enrol the operative when they move to another of your sites using MSite. As long as they are given access privileges to the site on their MSite profile and complete the relevant site induction, the operative can simply access the site as usual without the need to create a new profile and re-enrol their biometrics.  Better still an operative’s profile follows them to whichever site they attempt to access – so if an operative has been issued a red card on one of your sites, but attempts to access another of your sites down the road, access will be restricted through the turnstile accordingly. Know where and how your data is stored Data protection can be the elephant in the room when talking access control systems as such systems require basic information about each operative to be captured in order to create their access profile. As the ‘data controller’ of your operatives’ personal information, the responsibility is on you to make sure the data is secure and safe in the system that you choose. Traditionally access control systems would be installed on sites with the database of operatives’ information stored locally on a dedicated PC on site. What happens, however, if that PC is stolen, along with all the personal information held on it? Whilst the main cause for concern here would be the possibility that the data may get into the wrong hands there is also another significant issue in that all that information would have to be collected again and entered onto a replacement PC in order to get the access control system back up and running. This could also occur if the PC’s hard drive suddenly got corrupted. MSite has moved to the ‘cloud’ which addresses the potential issues of theft or PC failure by no longer storing the information locally on the PC. This also allows site managers, regional directors or head office to securely log into the system to access the reports and live dashboard without having to be sat in front of the PC on site. Moreover this capability facilitates the multi-site capability discussed above. Having moved into the cloud, all information entered into MSite is securely hosted in secure ISO 27001 data centres, allowing secure access to the system from anywhere with internet connectivity, 24/7.
