Visitor management – mining the hidden gems
Mining houses have seen the benefits of deploying end-to-end security solutions that begin at the physical perimeter barrier and run through various technologies to the surveillance systems and video analytics. All this technology is well and good, but do you actually know that the person who enters your premises is actually the person they claim to be?
By instituting a visitor management system, on-site and remote security teams are able to determine who is on the premises at all times and to keep an accurate record of who visited whom and when. In addition to providing heightened security, this is also helpful from an occupational health and safety perspective, since it is able provide management with critical information regarding people on site in the event of an emergency.
Furthermore, by verifying a visitor’s identity, mine security and OHS personnel can very quickly ascertain if they have completed the mandatory site induction and in other instances whether they are authorised to visit specific zones on the compound.
One way of ensuring that only visitors with verifiable identification are permitted to enter mining facilities is the scanning of drivers’ licences using proven 2D barcode scanning technology.
Since the data contained in the SADL 2D barcode is captured by the Department of Home Affairs (DHA) it is considered to be valid and verifiable. By a simple process of deduction, one can then assume that any data that is captured by a reputable SADL 2D barcode reader from the SADL barcode is both valid and verifiable
