Management of Contractors and Visitors System can help curb site vandalism
A proper Management of Contractors and Visitors System can help curb theft and vandalism on UK building sites by easily tracking individuals and maintaining a history of who visited each site.
The construction industry is severely affected by site thefts and vandalism, total costs rising to £400m a year or more than £1m a day, a news source close to the matter was able to reveal.
Quite often, a one-off single site theft can easily cost £50,000 in materials, plant and machinery damage, and delays to building projects often result in expanded costs for extended labour and contract damages.
Plus, more often than not, thefts occur after the site has been previously “scouted” by unauthorised people. For this reason, implementing a very solid and reliable Management of Contractors and Visitors System is certainly a must for companies planning to prevent any such occurrence.
Tensor’s Monitoring of Contractor and Visitor System (“MCVS”) comprises an identification system that uses paper printed passes and a method using these to track individuals and maintain a history of who visited and them.
The Monitoring of Contractor and Visitor System is designed to replace an existing paper based system or where no system previously existed at all. The system is simple to use, easy and quick to install and a good starting point for businesses that want to get a better handle on people who come to their premises.
It also provides proof of ‘due diligence’ in demonstrating that the business has a rudimentary system of managing visitors for health & safety purposes.
The key features of the Monitoring of Contractor and Visitor System are:
– The booking of appointments in advance and pre-booking of on-site contractors. As soon as an appointment is made, notification emails are sent to both the visitor and their host informing them of the appointment’s date, time and location.
– Companies that do not have a front desk Receptionist can use MCVS Enterprise with touch screen technology so visitors with appointments can book themselves in or out.
– Integration of MCVS Enterprise with a Tensor access control system to limit where visitors can go.
– Reporting system so that you can search on previous visits and perform basic analysis and reporting of visitor activity.
