Up-to-date Record that Moves with the Worker

The worker’s unique record – paired to a secure smartcard – travels with them and is transferable from job to job. This means that as workers go to a new project or site within the industry – even if they change employers – this information can be checked in seconds for rapid authentication.

No More Duplication

The portable, trusted worker record can eliminate duplication. No more pointless repetition or time wasted by repeating inductions or other events unnecessarily - just efficient and secure on-boarding and getting to work. Just as importantly, it cuts the risk of allowing access to unqualified people and underpins your sustainability objectives too.
