Sometimes, it’s difficult to demonstrate the competency of the workforce on site or in the office, as inductions, paper certificates, trade qualifications and in house training are not always recognised by a skills card. Therefore, the team at Heathrow needed a simple but effective and accessible way to record competency.
The card will be carried by all staff on site or in the office. The team can quickly check up to date training by scanning the QR code using an approved mobile phone and the appropriate ‘app’. This is a good demonstration of competency for trades that have no recognised training or skills card such as CRO cards which expire in September 2017. Supply chain staff can access and modify their own workforce details which can be verified simply on site by the appropriately approved staff.
No personal data is transferred during the process, only verified information that’s been approved by the supplier’s administration or by Mace, meaning data protection is kept within the organisation. The competency card can incorporate the current bio-metric scanners, so access to site can be approved or denied with confidence if training has expired or is not approved, informing security of non-conformance.
