Selecting Biometric Technology for Use in Construction and the Allied Trades.
Recently, we’ve seen video and photos of construction workers not wearing personal protective equipment (PPE) — helmets, gloves, masks and goggles on constructions sites – but this is now a prerequisite when following the COVID19 guidelines. What’s more, all site workers must be identified and checked prior to entering their place of work.
But, construction isn’t the only industry relying on PPE and COVID-19 Compliance to safeguard employees. Similar guidelines are now being applied in the manufacturing, mining and healthcare industries, and by many other professions.
While absolutely necessary to protect employees, PPEs create major problems for some biometric devices used to authenticate peoples identify as required by the guidelines, when they enter restricted areas.
Gloves for example, interfere with fingerprint readers and most of the face is obscured. In today’s COVID-19 era, no one wants to remove gloves and place their hands on a reader or key-pad previously used by scores if not hundreds of other people.
Facial readers may be contactless, but masks, goggles or helmets may greatly reduce the accuracy of the recognition software. That can lead to the rejection of authorised people and others with no legitimate business in the area being allowed to enter.
Iris-based authentication is also contactless. And it is also not impacted by PPE — including tinted glasses or contact lenses. Using the iris to identify people complies with the COVID-19 guidelines and also eliminates the potential spreading of disease while still maintaining security protocols.
There’s no need for employers to make a choice between their employees’ well-being and facility security and compliance.
