Each June, the National Safety Council (NSC) encourages businesses to promote and improve safety during National Safety Month. You can use the NSC's timely reminder to review your organization's safety policies and practices. Safety policies and procedures prevent accidents, injuries and death in the workplace. Implementing employee ID badges is an important part of a safety policy and can make your organization a safer place for employees.
Visual Recognition – ID cards provide visual recognition of every person in your building, making it easy for security personnel or employees to identify persons who don't belong.
Building Access – Coordinate employee ID cards with access control through HID proximity cards. An access control system allows all employees to enter the building at will while requiring visitors to enter through a monitored entrance. You also have the ability to disable an employee's card if he is no longer allowed in the building.
Picture Directory – Using ID Maker software, you can easily create an employee photo directory for your employee handbook or intranet. The picture directory allows employees to become familiar with new faces around the building.
Visitor Management – Utilize your photo ID card printer to create visitor ID badges. Visitor ID badges signal to employees that the visitor is permitted to be in the building. Create badges for contractors or consultants who visit regularly to encourage an atmosphere of teamwork.
National Safety Month is the ideal time to implement an ID card safety policy or upgrade your current policy. When employees feel safe at work, they are more productive, engaged and less likely to use disability benefits. To conduct a thorough review of your organization's safety policies, reference our Workplace Security Audit available in our Knowledge Center.
