Site Sign In App: Setup and Tips for 2024

A site sign in app, is the modern way to sign in and out staff, contractors, visitors and other employee types into the workplace. It's important to track who is on site and in the building in the event of an emergency as well as to conduct a compliance check as people sign in to make sure they are inducted and acknowledge and understand important safety policies and procedures.

You're thinking about setting up a workplace signin app for signing in and out staff, contractors, visitors or other employee types. Where to start? What to consider? what sort of setup should you put in place? and what sort of technology is best to setup? Lets walk through each one step by step below!

Where and how to start signing in staff on site?

It all starts with using the app to sign in staff as they arrive on site. What kind of entry point do your staff pass through at site / in the workplace? is there a reception area? a muster point? a gatehouse entry? You'll need to establish how staff are coming in on site and how you want them to signin using the app. Using the Work Sign sign in app, you can setup a sign in gateway that all contractors, employees or visitors check in via which might be loaded up on an iPad or tablet and that might be presented via a wall mounted setup or a kiosk setup. as those staff arrive on site, they simply sign in on site using the app.

Setup a central sign in location on an iPad or tablet at the entrance to the site

Sign in App on Tablet or Wall Mounted Computer?

Which one is your preference? Do you want them to walk up to a tablet and sign in that way or would you prefer a more interactive larger experience on a wall mounted monitor?

Sign in App Site Specific Features

Think about the things that you want the contractor, employee, staff member or visitor to go through as part of their signin process on site. As a core site management tool, its all about everything the contractor, visitor or staff member needs to know in order to work on site and to work safely and ensure the safety of their coworkers. Sign in and out on site is just one aspect of site management, the content that you induct them on, the procedures and policies you get them to progress through and the acknowledgements you need your contractors, visitors and staff to understand and complete are all important aspects of a site sign in app.

Are they doing a visitor / contractor induction first?
Do you need to capture their photo?
Do they need to print a card or sticker?
What do you need to capture as part of them working on site? evidence of training? certifications? insurances?
What policies and procedures do they need to acknowledge?
Do you need it to alert staff on site that someone has just checked in and are waiting for them?
Do you need to collect emergency contact details?

Print Stickers or Cards?
