RFID Mustering Technology

You can never be too prepared

Every day, millions of Americans leave the safety of their homes and go to your facility for work. Emergencies in the workplace are uncommon, but when an emergency arises, your employees expect you to have solid emergency procedures in place.

 

The fact is, most workplaces do have some emergency response and access control system in place. Depending on the size of your company, you may have an informal plan posted around the office, or you may have a fully automated system in place.

 

When it comes to keeping your employees safe, every facility should have a well-documented process. The advancements in RFID technology are providing businesses with scalable safety measures that are being used to aid in emergencies, evacuation, and mustering.

Emergency Situations

Depending on your geographic location, natural disasters such as tornadoes, flash floods, and wildfires can pose a significant danger to your facility. Check out this article to ready how RFID mustering technology was used during the Alberta Wildfire. Another situation is man-made disasters, such as a building fire or toxic release that prompts for an immediate evacuation.

 

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) recommends that all companies have one emergency warden for every 20 employees[1]. These wardens are responsible for sweeping a building during an evacuation and are the last person to leave when there’s an emergency. This person is also responsible for making sure employees meet at the mustering (or safe zone) area.

 

RFID mustering technology takes the guesswork out of the evacuation management process, and it’s pretty simple to explain. First, all of your employees would have an employee ID badge with RFID technology. Your facility would have RFID readers placed in and around your facility, which would be hooked up to software. If an emergency or evacuation occurs, the system can be used to determine in real-time how many employees evacuated, and how many remain inside your building.

Access Control

Do you know who is entering and exiting your building? Not only do access control systems aid in the emergency management and mustering process, but it also helps protect your facility from unauthorized access.

 

Access control technology provides layered protection, which means you have full control of your facility. You can fully customize access to individual rooms, employees, time of day access, and much more. Plus, access control data is logged in the event you need to see who accessed a specific part of your facility.

The right components for access control:
