Action on Access
Gallagher's Action on Access solution provides the ability to set sophisticated access rules using simple actions, automating decisions about when and where a cardholder can access an area.
Badging at a nominated reader can enable or disable access (card, competency or access group membership) immediately or in the future, based on a person's previous movements.
This solution has been deployed at a range of customer sites including universities, hospitals, airports, prisons, mines, and commercial. It also provides a useful way to manage temporary worker and contractor entry and time on site.
Examples of Action on Access in use
Action on Access helps sites enforce payment, comply with safety standards and reduce risk, while protecting their people and assets. This powerful tool can be used in a wide range of situations and settings, demonstrated by the following examples.
Enforce payment prior to exit
A cardholder presents their credential at the car park entry reader. Entry is granted and the cardholder’s competency is disabled. After payment at the car park terminal, the cardholder’s competency is enabled. This competency is required to exit the car park.
Reconcile billable hours
Specify the period of time a contractor can spend on site. This allows the site to easily reconcile the contractor’s billable hours. The contractor arrives on site. The contractor passes their credential to the receptionist, who badges at the time and attendance reader. Access has now been given for a specified period of time, after which time the contractor will be unable to move around site.
View induction material
An employee traveling from a regional office to head office must view the head office induction material prior to entry. The employee visits reception where they are shown the site’s induction material. The receptionist then presents the employee’s credential at a reader behind the desk, allowing site access for the day.
Regular safety tests must be conducted
Upon successful completion of a hazardous goods test, the test facilitator will enable access for three months, by presenting the test applicant’s credential at a reader. After three months, the employee must complete the test again, in order to get access.
Identify employees prior to access
The employee visits reception where the receptionist confirms the identity of the employee and presents the employee’s credential to a reader behind the desk, allowing site access for the day.
View daily hazards
Site access is allowed for the day, upon presentation of a credential at the reader located near the hazards board.
Enforce quarantine protocols
An employee who has been in a quarantine zone can not enter the sterile zone until six hours has passed. The competency required to enter the sterile zone is disabled upon exit from the quarantine zone and will automatically re-enable in six hours’ time.
Know when access is being taken
A security manager presents an employee’s credential at a reader behind a desk. This allows the employee access to the key safe within the next 10 minutes.
Duty of care: Employee check-in
Check on your employees every few hours to ensure they are safe. Employees at a major airport are required to check-in every two hours, by presenting their credential at the area’s entry reader. This will enable access around the area for two hours, after which time they will need to request access again. If the employee fails to check-in, a notification is automatically sent to the employee’s supervisor containing the employee’s contact details.
