“With this RFID system, we are able to monitor all the people entering and exiting the construction site and we are able to do it fast and accurately. The system is easy and care-free to use.”
-Anssi Siitonen, Production Engineer at Skanska
Skanska AB is one of the world’s leading project development and construction groups. They currently employ 48.500 employees in Europe and in the US. In Finland, their operations cover construction services, residential and commercial project development, including constructing the subway network in Helsinki area.
When constructing a subway tunnel in Finland, construction giant Skanska wanted to monitor the personnel moving in and out of construction sites more effectively.
Surveillance cameras and RFID readers were installed at all entry and exit points that workers used to get in and out of the construction site. This automated system replaced the traditional timecard system and prevents errors in personnel checking in and out.
