It's not a stretch to say that Visitor Management is extremely important for overall safety and security in healthcare facilities.

Consider the following:

  • 70% of victims who experienced trauma from workplace violence worked in healthcare and social assistance industry (CDC, National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, Occupational Violence)

4 Questions That Will Lead You to the Perfect Visitor Badges for Your Site

Posted by Dan Ryan on Jan 24, 2019 2:30:00 PM

Visitor badges are one of the most popular forms of Visitor Management, up there in the Visitor Hall of Fame next to the plain ol' sign-in sheet and the "ALL GUESTS MUST SIGN IN" placard. 

Organizations of all kinds have been using visitor badges for decades, from classic "Hi! My name is..." badges to today's innovative expiring badges

It's not hard to see why visitor badges are so popular: they're easy to use, they're affordable and they get the job done, distinguishing between employees and guests to help increase security.

However, what's not immediately clear to organizations looking to purchase visitor badges for the first time is what kind of visitor badges to choose.

In fact, many organizations have no idea there are dozens of options out there when it comes to visitor badges.

"Options?" they think. "I don't know, just one of those sticky name things, I guess."

It's hard to blame people who aren't familiar with visitor badges for being unaware, as not everyone is as obsessed with visitor badges as we are at IDenticard.

3 Ways Visitor Badges Increase Site Safety & Boost Facility Security

Posted by Dan Ryan on Nov 16, 2018 2:00:00 PM

For most organizations, welcoming visitors is an essential part of running a successful operation. From schools to corporate offices, guests are a key part of a functioning workplace.

Guests are going to vary from site to site: they could be substitute teachers, delivery personnel, maintenance workers or associates from a company's satellite location across the country.

No matter the guest or type of site, the question is always the same: how should these guests be handled when they arrive?

Most sites have some kind of visitor procedure in place, whether it's a full-scale Visitor Management solution or a sign-in sheet left at the front desk. The kind of solution used is going to depend on a number of factors, including staffing levels, guest volume and budget.

However, there's one guest identification solution that can go a long way toward boosting site security without breaking the bank: visitor badges.

How can visitor badges be used as a security tool?
