“We chose Biosite for our access control and emergency management because of its integrated approach. Placing all functions on one portal makes management and review of the system easily accessible whilst the integration gives us confidence in our security and emergency arrangements”

CAREYS PROJECT MANAGER
BACKGROUND & CHALLENGE
As the Principal Contractor, Careys needed a single supplier to provide an easy-to-use, integrated system including:
- Access control, to prevent unauthorised operatives on site
- Online reporting portal
- A reliable, hassle-free fire alarm solution
- A comprehensive and configurable delivery management system (DMS).
Operating in a challenging central London location, the successful supplier would need to have the ability to tailor their solution, adapting it to the local environment, in terms of aesthetics and deliveries.
By choosing the right system, Careys would be able to dramatically reduce the excessive levels of paperwork and improve health and safety on site.
Biosite firstly understood the needs of Careys and gave a full demonstration of their system’s capabilities to a working group including the health and safety and project management teams.
Following a rigorous process, Biosite’s range of products were chosen, as they achieved everything that Careys had stipulated and more, as well as an accurate financial proposal.
Biosite’s experience on similar projects allowed them to show how Carey’s specific challenges could be overcome.
The Biosite system was chosen due to the usability and integrated nature of the solutions, with all the separate components working seamlessly within one system, all linked by the unique ‘one person, one profile’ biometric fingerprint technology.
Biosite provided its biometric access control and delivery management system, with integrated fire alarm and online fire portal to aid and improve health & safety on site.
A joint on site working group carried out a number of pre-start sessions to ensure a smooth implementation of site set-up, data capture and configuration, this was followed up with on site training on each area of the integrated system.
A delivery management solution was tailored to Careys, taking into account local challenges.
Biosite’s EN54 certified wireless fire and first aid alarm was installed and configured to the project needs via specified zoning and remote reporting from the Biosite portal. Careys can be confident the system is fully functioning due to the automatic integrity check.
Following this successful implementation, Careys have now deployed Biosite technology on it’s other ‘top-down’ projects.
Biosite’s integrated system ensures only the people with the right credentials are on site.
GDPR compliance with Biosite’s unique biometric user profiling and de-duplication of operative records. An operative’s unique profile and history stays with them throughout their time with Careys.
Biosite is future-ready with its open API, enabling direct integration with existing systems used at Carey Group to generate insight into their workforce.
Careys have the option to carry out pre-enrolment checks and registration off site.
Configurable site data on media screens will display operatives on site – by organisation and trade.
Trusted fire alarm system allows for quick, flawless evacuation with automatic printing of roll call and free spin of the turnstiles.
“It’s been a pleasure working with Michael and the Careys team. From understanding their challenges, to helping them develop an end-to-end workforce management and fire safety solution to keep their staff safer.”
