Track Safety Equipment Usage with Enhanced ID Card

Construction companies and other employers now can track employees’ usage of safety equipment with Credential Verification Service’s new feature.

CVS provides photo ID cards with a QR code. Authorized employees first scan the QR code on the employee’s card with tablet or smartphone to log each checkout of a respirator mask, a climbing harness, or other safety equipment. The card is scanned again to display the employee’s past usage of safety equipment.

This is a new optional feature. The basic service logs and displays employees’ training records.

Recent OSHA silica regulations require companies to track the usage of respirator masks. If an employee uses a mask more than 30 times a year, he or must receive a specialized medical checkup. CVS now gives construction companies, especially masonry, drywall, and demolition contractors, an easy way to track issuance.

The CVS database is instantly updated to record each usage. Managers can easily download a complete spreadsheet of all equipment checked out, by employee, to meet regulatory reporting requirements.
