In facilities with high security requirements or where hazardous materials exist, the practice of mustering is becoming more commonplace. Mustering means using the access control system to keep a record of who is in the building at all times so that, in the event of an evacuation, a list of everyone in the building at the time of the evacuation can be consulted and people checked off as they’re accounted for. Essentially, the practice of mustering means that people log in and out of a building, just like they would a computer.
To properly enact a mustering program, access control devices are installed at all exit points, or at muster stations safety areas where people congregate in the event of an emergency. The visitor management policy must require card access and must be enforced meticulously, both by the guards and by the facility’s occupants.
Sentinel aims to practice mustering by controlling and keeping track of persons and vehicles coming in and out of a facility. Also provides reports that shows a history of who has been in and out of your building whether they have been checked out or are still in the building, people who are in the building beyond the recommended time. Basically gives you full control of who visits your building..
