Stores, warehouses and distribution centers typically have balers to compact plastic and cardboard packaging. Only authorized employees should have access to these potentially dangerous machines. By law, an employee operating a vertical baler must be of legal age and be ANSI-certified. Employers that do not take reasonable steps in support of such workplace safety requirements are at risk.
Entertech Systems offers OSHA-age compliance by helping retailers secure access to rooms with balers or to the operation of balers with a biometric identity management solution. Only employees that are of legal age and ANSI-certified are granted access through biometric identification, which, unlike PINs, cards or keys, cannot be shared between employees.
Biometric Access Control in Action in Retail Baler [Video]
Here is an example of how a customer of ours used a Suprema BioLite Net to control access to a cardboard baler within a major retail store. The baler in this video is an example of an IoT (Internet of Things) application within the retail space. Previously dumb hardware is now a networked technology — and biometrics ensures that only the people who are of-age and certified can use it.
