Employee safety is critical for any industrial manufacturing facility, and while the industry continues to make progress, there continues to remain an abundance of threats to employee safety on a day-to-day basis. Part of safety management procedures for manufacturing facilities involves securing the facility’s perimeter, meaning that risk mitigation for threats starts at the front door of any modern industrial manufacturing facility. Threats may involve cybersecurity, viruses, banned personnel, intellectual property theft, or any number of common legal issues. A visitor management system with a check-in kiosk provides simple ways to mitigate a great deal of threats to your staff’s safety.
With the advent of the COVID-19 pandemic, businesses were suddenly thrust into a situation where they were responsible for mitigating a situation nobody could have anticipated. This unexpected crisis paved the way for most industrial visitor management systems to implement health screening tools to screen visitors prior to entry. For example, a lobby check-in kiosk may ask a visitor if they have recently been exposed or have contracted a contagious virus. To prevent the spread of COVID-19, facilities may also choose to ask if someone has been vaccinated, or if they currently have a fever or other common symptoms of the virus. LobbyFox’s innovative visitor management system allows users to create and utilize their own set of health screening questions. An example of some of the health screening questions that could be asked during the LobbyFox visitor intake is shown in the following link to this OSHA health screening questionnaire.
It could be awkward to turn away a visitor who fails a questionnaire in person. But, with a check-in kiosk, the message can be displayed quietly, on-screen. The ability to automatically dismiss these visitors without ever involving staff is critical for personnel health. Using LobbyFox, any visitors that do not pass the health screening receive automatic dismissals through the check-in kiosk interface with no risk of exposure to the front desk personnel. This is a quick, easy, and frictionless approach to prevent the spread of illnesses throughout any industrial manufacturing facility.
Each LobbyFox kiosk saves and stores all visitor profiles and historical visitor records to the cloud, which are stored indefinitely for easy accessibility for visitor record reporting. LobbyFox also keeps records of all safety quiz results and signed NDAs or other legal documents. Records such as these can be critical to have in the event of any health or safety issues for legal purposes. Also, the visitor reporting system can be useful in instantly notifying visitors of any potentially unsafe conditions by instantly sending them text messages with updates.
LobbyFox also provides facilities with a unique communication method for both visitors and hosts. LobbyFox can notify employees when a visitor arrives to see them via text message and email, while at the same time enabling staff to keep their phone numbers and email addresses private. System administrators can opt to disallow entry to any type of visitors as well, like solicitors. Physical contact with the visitor is not required which further protects personnel safety.
Nearly every industrial manufacturing facility has slightly different procedures when it comes to health and safety within the facility. Ensuring that each visitor has been provided with all the necessary information to prevent injuries or accidents is paramount to keeping the visitor and facility personnel safe, and the company protected from a legal standpoint. Modern visitor management systems provide simple and trackable features that can present visitors with safety orientations, procedural information, and questionnaires. LobbyFox check-in kiosks can perform the following safety procedures with ease:
