How to monitor attendance and worked hours for building contractors by using CSCS cards

Monitor Contractor Attendance and Worked Hours using a CSCS card and a Tensor system

Monitoring attendance and worked hours for building contractors is a major issue for residential developers, mostly because, in order to do so, they typically need to issue additional access cards. Putting in place proper systems designed to monitor attendance for contractors is particularly useful nowadays, as the construction of new homes in the UK reached a seven-year high in the three months to September.

Recent figures released by the National House Building Council(NHBC) show that 36,343 new home registrations were made between July and September, an 8% increase on the same period in 2013.

A recent news report on the matter also revealed that the Help to Buy scheme has increased demand for new housing, which has increased market confidence and made developers more willing to commit to projects.

The NHBC said that the figures show a “genuine broad-based recovery across the whole of the country”, highlighting strong growth in the North East, Yorkshire and Humberside and the West Midlands.

Construction workers and other people who hold a CSCS card can use their existing card to clock onto a Tensor Time & Attendance system and/or gain access to a construction site or similar, or use the CSCS card to gain access through turnstiles or car park barriers.

Within Tensor.NET there is a CSCS card wizard. This allows system users to quickly grant contractors access to their clocks and access control system.

One feature most companies will certainly appreciate is the possibility to fully customize badge creation, since the system allows templates for badges to be previewed by the user to see how their badge will appear, populating it with their personal details. Previewed badges can then be printed to any windows supported card printer.

The templates can be single or double sided, in landscape or portrait format and can include a variety of content types, including here text, images and barcodes.
