Why Tracking On-Site Personnel Is Important

Knowing your employees locations is important for their safety. Additionally your contractors, visitors and guests also appreciate your concern for their safety. Finally your government likely requires mining site safety compliance of your personnel management system.

Multi-Site Mining Personnel Management Problem

How do you rate your company’s mining site personnel management?
Your site compliance system must be able to report who is currently on your site at any time. When your mining concern has multiple locations this can be difficult. When your locations are remote and may have unreliable power and Internet, the solution can be extremely difficult. What if your mining facility have an entrance located on a public road? In this case, you can’t use a traditional access control system since it won’t work.

What Solution Was Picked By This Major Mining Company

The compliance solution mentioned here must accurately account for all their on premise personnel. The solution used is CLOUD-IN-HAND® stratus-io Time & Attendance. Stratus-io handles all their on-site personnel employees, contractors, visitors & guests. Stratus-io also provides their multi-location stations for check-in and checkout that generates accurate reports of who is currently on-site at their locations in real-time.

How It Works

Their personnel are issued badges used to access some of their on-site buildings. Some of their personnel may stay on-site for weeks at a time. They also issue badges to all their contractors, guests, and visitors. These badges are issued as they come on-site at their mining location’s front entrance. Their personnel check-in by swiping their badge at an idChamp RFID reader kiosk, or a guard scans their badge. When their personnel leave the site their badge is swiped again. Their check-in, check-out process is fast and easy. Their reporting makes a list of the current on-site personnel hourly. 

Reporting When Power Fails

They make reports anytime they are needed with the tap of a button. Their check-in/out stations are deployed to all locations needed. What happens when their site power is down? Their system works even when network data access and power are lost. Stratus-io works in their mines where WiFi is unavailable.
