ID CARDS MAKE WORK A SAFER PLACE
Each June, the National Safety Council (NSC) encourages businesses to promote and
improve safety during National Safety Month. You can use the NSC's timely reminder
to review your organization's safety policies and practices. Safety policies and
procedures prevent accidents, injuries and death in the workplace. Implementing
employee ID badges is an important part of a safety policy and can make your organization
a safer place for employees.
Visual Recognition – ID cards
provide visual recognition of every person in your building, making it easy for
security personnel or employees to identify persons who don't belong.
Building Access – Coordinate employee ID cards with access
control through proximity cards. An
access control system allows all employees to enter the building at will while requiring
visitors to enter through a monitored entrance. You also have the ability to disable
an employee's card if he is no longer allowed in the building.
Picture Directory – Using
ID Maker software, you can easily create an employee photo directory for
your employee handbook or intranet. The picture directory allows employees to become
familiar with new faces around the building.
– Utilize your photo ID card printer
to create visitor ID badges.
Visitor ID badges signal to employees that the visitor is permitted to be in the
building. Create badges for contractors or consultants who visit regularly to encourage
an atmosphere of teamwork.
National Safety Month is the ideal time to implement an ID card safety policy or
upgrade your current policy. When employees feel safe at work, they are more productive,
engaged and less likely to use disability benefits. To conduct a thorough review
of your organization's safety policies, reference our
