IDville Takes Part in Promoting Safety during National Safety Month

Photo ID Systems and Visitor Management Tools encourage workplace and employee safety.

Grand Rapids, MI - Every year during the month of June, the National Safety Council encourages organizations to get involved and participate in National Safety Month. National Safety Month is an annual observance to educate and influence behaviors around the leading causes of preventable injuries and deaths. IDville, the leading identification and security expert for business, education, healthcare, and government, is excited to participate in National Safety Month by promoting ID Maker Systems and visitor management tools to ensure the safety of all staff and visitors.

Photo identification systems go hand-in-hand with safety when it comes to the staff that makes up your organization. The ID Maker System is a quick and simple solution to identify who has authorization to be on the premise, who is a visitor, and who is a staff member. Utilizing HID Proximity cards for employee ID badges permits access control to each person who enters the building and promotes a higher level of overall security.

Tracking visitors is an important part of ensuring safety, but it can be easily overlooked if a visitor management system has not been implemented. Not only does it keep buildings safe from theft and violence, it promotes a feeling of security and well-being throughout organizations. If your organization doesn't encounter a high volume of visitors on a daily basis, IDville's temporary ID systems and visitor bundles include everything you need to start your visitor program.

During National Safety Month, each week of June is centered on a critical safety issue. This year's issues include preventing slips, trips, and falls, employee wellness, emergency preparedness, and ergonomics. "National Safety Month is a great time to focus on each topic of the week and get all employees involved to make sure they understand your companies plans and policies regarding workplace safety," Kelli Piepkow, Marketing Manager of IDville, commented.

IDville encourages employers and managers to think about the safety of employees and visitors every day of the year, not just during National Safety Month.
