Human Recognition Systems deploys biometric authentication system with BAM Nuttall

December 17, 2013 - 

Human Recognition Systems has deployed its MSite biometric authentication system with contruction engineering solutions provider BAM Nuttall at the 2012 London Olympic venue, the company has announced.

According to the company, MSite was deployed in tandem with the Construction Skills Certification Scheme’s cards at the construction site. Under the partnership, only personnel with the correct authority and training are granted site access.

“We were delighted to have been selected by BAM Nuttall to ensure site security, improve sub-contractor management and help minimise health and safety issues with the implementation of MSite,” Simon Meyer, Construction and Operations Director at Human Recognition Systems said. “By requiring all workers to undergo biometric authentication via a hand geometry template and combining it with the CSCS data, MSite provides BAM with the assurance that all those on site have the right competencies and permission levels. This process, which we believe should become best practice for the construction industry, has helped to ensure the success of the London site’s transformation.”

Reported previously, HRS and CSCS announced their new integrated services earlier this year, in August, 2013.

BiometricUpdate.com recently chatted with HRS’s Simon Meyer to talk about the company’s MSite biometric authentication system, as well as company trajectory and the broader biometric access control market.

“There has definitely been a tangible benefit from the integration of these two methods of identity verification,” John Walker, Head of Security at BAM Nuttall said. “Combining the two has saved us time by simplifying the process for workers arriving at the site each day. Using MSite alongside the CSCS cards has also assisted with workforce management and increased on-site security levels, by ensuring that all contractors are who they say they are, have been fully inducted and have the necessary skill levels required to carry out the work.”
