Realizing and Testing a Safety Registration System to Monitor Workplace Attendances

This paper describes how, when an emergency action plan must be executed, workers meet at the safe collecting point. In order to know who is missing, you must be able to determine the workers who are actually present in the workplace. This is a problem of great relevance in the Italian Agricultural Mechanization Institute, where apart from workers that regularly sign in (and out), a great variety of employees are found daily: temporary employees, scholarship holders, Ph. D. aspirants, outside guests, visitors and maintenance staff that are not scheduled because they don’t have an employee timecard. Furthermore the workplace includes offices, laboratories, a machine shop and farm. This paper illustrates and discusses a practical solution for managing of the actual daily attendances on the Institute working premises. Particularly, the paper is currently testing an IT (Information Technology) Safety Registration System, which allows having an updated workplaces attendance list every two minutes. Thus, when an emergency action plan must be executed, we can save up to a 50% roll-call time to know who is missing at the collecting point.
