What if there was an easier way to track who is on site at all times and ensure entry is granted only to approved workers? There is with Rapid Access Systems from Rapid Global. Providing secure site control through an ID swipe card sign in solution, access control software and hardware is the easiest way to verify and grant onsite access to employees and contractors.
Rapid Access Systems is perfect for companies who have site security concerns, or a need to track who is on site. When used in conjunction with Contractor Management software it is a comprehensive sub-contractor management solution.
If your company is concerned about personnel or contractors accessing your premises without proper authority, our access control systems are the perfect gatekeeper.
Some of Australia’s biggest companies like Ford, Powerwater, Ausgrid and Mirvac already rely on Rapid Global to grant access to their employees and contractors. From property management, to transport and manufacturing, a Rapid Access System can be designed to suit any business category or industry.
How Rapid Access Systems Work.
1) Prior to arriving on site, workers can complete their inductions and provide documentation such as insurance certificates.
2) On arrival to the site, workers can sign in to the access system terminal using their pre-delivered ID card or print an ID card on the spot.
3) The system will search the database to find the compliance status of the individual (i.e. induction completed, documentation up to date) and display alerts or deny access if company documents are expired or if induction is not complete. There is even an option to complete induction and provide new documents on the spot.
Sign Into Site Using a Smartphone
Getting workers signed on to site at many entry points or at remote locations presents multiple challenges. Paper sign in systems can be unreliable and time consuming, particularly in the case of an emergency. Furthermore, hardware terminals located in a reception area for signing in may not always be viable or cost-effective, especially for those companies with many sites or sign-in points.
At Rapid Global, we have recognised this reoccurring problem and developed a solution which can be a great option within your Rapid Access Systems package – the Rapid Access Mobile App.
Using this technology, the inducted contractor or employee can sign in to site using 4 simple steps: 1) Download the free Rapid Access App from Google Play or the App Store 2) Get within the radius of the site and sign in to the Rapid Access App on their own smart phone 3) Select ‘Detect Site’ and choose the site required from Geo Location or scan the site QR Code 4) Select ‘Enter Site.’ Rapid Access can connect to Rapid Induct and Rapid Contractor Management to ensure the worker and their company is fully compliant for that site. If they are compliant, site entry is gained. If they are not inducted to the site, they are refused entry.
Information about the site can be found on the App, including emergency site contacts.

Site Access Hardware Options
An extension of Rapid Induct, Rapid Access Systems provides hardware such as kiosks, turnstiles and swipe card entry systems as well as online hosted software for the control of on-site access to your workplace. Used in conjunction with data enabled ID cards issued through the Rapid Induct and Rapid Contractor Management systems, Rapid Access systems ensure entry to your site is restricted to only fully inducted and compliant workers.
Alcohol Testing Units and Key Dispensers
Our solutions can include breath testing units for alcohol testing of workers at point of site entry. Immediate alerts of positive readings are sent to management via SMS and email. Full integration with our online Rapid Contractor Management and Rapid Induct software ensures seamless and safe site entry.
Key dispenser units ensure contractors entering after hours or to unmanned sites are only allocated their relevant key. Linked to Rapid Contractor Management, the on site and online system ensures only inducted and compliant (insured etc.) contractors are permitted entry.

What Makes Rapid Access Systems Different?
There are many systems in the marketplace that provide onsite sign in, but Rapid Access Systems provides so much more than just access. The system links with other Rapid Global products such as Rapid Induct and Rapid Contractor Management to provide a comprehensive picture of the compliance of both the individual worker and their company. We build your system the way you want it.
Rapid Access Systems can be a simple sign / in sign out system or expand to a fully charged system that includes online work orders, tracking of man hours, alerts to the worker on arrival, tests for alcohol impairment and access to the correct key for the right person on the job. Add in Rapid Permit To Work software and your system grows to include issuing and tracking of work permits at the access station.
