Time and attendance system allows using a specific shift on public holidays
“Totally unacceptable” was the majority verdict of firefighters to a new set of rules which they claim will extend response times. “The results of the survey clearly indicate that the council leaders and service managers have got it wrong,” said Surrey Fire Brigades Union (FBU) secretary Richard Jones after firefighters were consulted on Surrey Fire and Rescue Authority’s draft plan to cut back night cover. “The proposals are totally unacceptable.” A spokesman for the Authority said it proposes “appropriate” cover over 24 hours.
Comprehensive user-definable working patterns, rosters and shifts and individual and group absence planners are just some of the features in Tensor’s smart card and biometric Time & Attendance systems. Up to nine reason codes can also be stored in the easy to use clocking station. These allow clocking out for configurable reasons such as Dentist, Business or Smoking Break. The working patterns or shifts can be customised, with either fixed or flexitime rules plus features to override the normal pattern like using a specific shift on public holidays.
