Distribution Center Visitor Management
Distributors and Warehouse firms improve their security and safety with Safe Site Check In’s automated visitor reception and daily logs.
There are over 600,000 people employed in the U.S. warehousing and storage industry, which generates $22 billion in revenue each year. An estimated 10,000 U.S. businesses participate in this industry, which organizes and directs hundreds of millions of dollars worth of merchandise and supply chain management annually.
Warehouse companies are turning to automation to cope with worker shortages and the ever-growing complexity of their jobsites. There is a need to automate, streamline and simplify warehouse operations without compromising security and compliance requirements. In the U.S., less than 30% of warehouses are operating efficiently, according to a Georgia Institute of Technology study. These days, warehouse companies realize that it takes more than a lone employee and lots of paper.
Distribution facilities receive a variety of visitors, subcontractors and employees, and the rules differ for each type of visitor by industry. While some firms have adopted work-from-home arrangements for office workers, most distribution employees are unable to work remotely. Therefore, facility access control and visitor management are fundamental to protecting the people, equipment, inventory, trade secrets, and data found in a warehouse.
And fundamental to visitor management, safety and compliance at warehouse facilities is the capture of access data: Who, what, when, why, how and how long the facility was accessed.
Benefits of Automated Daily Access Logs At Distribution Centers
Distributors save money while increasing safety and compliance by using Safe Site Check In to automate daily log data capture and recordkeeping. Arriving persons scan a QR code and identify themselves using their mobile phone. The process and data is completely digital, private, and secure. No new hardware or software required, works with any device, no downloads or installs, is intuitive to use without training.
Safe Site Check In allows you to detect the arrival of visitors into your facility, answer health screening questions, get their agreement to safety rules and legal waivers, and notify an appropriate host. The process is completely customizable, and you no longer need a full time receptionist. Visitors and staff who are granted access will be issued an electronic badge.
For a healthier and safer workplace, supervisors can require profile data from visitors, subcontractors and employees. Examples include safety certifications, licenses, proofs of vaccination, visas or employability proofs. Maximum occupancy rules can be enforced automatically. Visitors can report observations, notes and photos to management as well.
And if a visitor does not have a functioning smartphone, Safe Site Check In can function as a “kiosk” on any tablet device.
