Human Recognition Systems integrates biometric access control with CSCS

August 29, 2013 - 

Human Recognition Systems has integrated its MSite system with the Construction Skills Certification Scheme’s (CSCS) identification and credentialing system.

CSCS provides identification cards tied to professional credentials for people working on construction sites to improve safety and efficiency.  Human Recognition System’s MSite is a biometric access control and workforce management solution based on hand geometry.

Reported in the Professional Security Magazine, MSite will validate CSCS cards and then biometrically authenticate card holders.

“The construction industry is lacking a secure, construction-specific two tier authentication method to check construction workers’ identity and competencies before allowing them access to sites,” Simon Meyer, Construction and Operations Director at Human Recognition Systems said in the report. “CSCS, combined with construction-specific biometric technology such as MSite, lowers overheads and can accurately identify members of the workforce and manage their competencies. This provides businesses with an easy way of managing access rights and site activities in accordance with company policies and procedures.”

Reported previously, Human Recognition Systems has also installed its MSite access control system at the Olympic Park and Athletes Village legacy projects in London, following its successful deployment during the 2012 games.

Human Recognition Systems also recently implemented its student attendance management system MVerify, for the higher education division of UK training provider, QA.
