Schools and other learning institutions have always been regarded as places of safety and when parents drop the kids off at the school gate in the mornings, they can rest assured that their child will be in good hands for the next eight hours. This is peace of mind that every parent or guardian wants and expects. This is why you need to make sure that your school can provide its children and parents with the best security possible and one way to do this is to introduce a visitor management system. Nowadays it is too easy for unauthorised personnel to enter any school property and to walk around the area unsupervised. Hopefully your teachers and other staff will stop and ask them what they are doing there and if they don’t get a suitable answer then they will escort them off the property or even have to call the police.
This is not a situation that you want to put your staff into and so it makes a lot more sense to be able to monitor anyone who comes on the school property so that you can know exactly who they are and where they are at any given moment. If a visitor management system is a quite new concept for you then it would make perfect sense to contact Taremtec who will introduce you to the systems benefits and features and how it can be implemented in your learning institution. Just to give you an idea of what a system like this can do for the parents, staff and children, here are some of its many benefits.
1. It is health and safety compliant – As part of the visitor management solution, guests will be asked to sign in when they arrive on site and so checking documents can be added to the system which will contain the terms and conditions of entry and so people can sign these before they are checked in. Once a signing in process takes place, a digital copy is generated and kept on file for sharing during their visit or for future reference. It is all about safeguarding your business and school reputation which is incredibly essential nowadays.
2. It provides legal compliance – In the event that a visitor experiences some kind of accident while on the property, the details can result into the visitor management system and so recklessness can be looked at again to make sure that the person was indeed on the property and if they did get injured at the specific location stated. It also allows you to look back at any previous incidents in case the report needs to be generated.
3. It improves security – Much like putting an alarm system or security cameras around your home or business, anything that will dictate a person from coming onto the property who really shouldn’t be there is money very well spent. In the event that someone does enter the property uninvited then the system will say that details are not entered and they can be escorted off the property or into the hands of police. A school’s security is incredibly important and so you should invest in it.
These are just three of the many benefits of implementing a visitor management system. Having a system such as this in place helps to reduce the costs and reduces the stress levels of staff who you previously expected to sign people in and out, as well as doing all of the other jobs that they are expected to do.
