Benefits of an access control system for NYC Job Sites

An access control system is a set of rules that determines who is allowed to access a job site or construction site. With laws like local law 196 and everyone looking for a lawsuit it is important to know there is a solution. Access control systems have many benefits, including:


In our society today, it's very easy to get wrapped up in our phones and other devices. This can be hazardous when walking around, as anyone can easily miss what's going on around them. This is especially true in busy areas like New York City, where some locations can see over half a million pedestrians passing in a single day. This can be worrisome for any construction site management, especially if many of these people are walking with their face in their phone.

With so many people around, it's important to take steps to protect yourself and your project from possible accidents. One way to do this is by implementing an access control system, which make it nearly impossible for someone to accidentally walk into your project. This greatly reduces the risk of injury and possible lawsuits.

Another thing to keep in mind is that other pedestrians may take advantage of an opening on a job site to shave some time off their foot commute. We can help you deploy barricades or other barriers in place to keep them out of the way. If a customer is injured while in a restricted area, the business may be held liable if they did not have an adequate access control system in place.


Theft is a huge problem in many industries, and it can be difficult to keep track of all the tools, equipment and supplies that are necessary for operations. However, by installing proper perimeter fences, security cameras with secured gates and turnstiles, you can greatly reduce the risk of items going missing. Larger, more expensive items are difficult if not impossible to get through our turnstiles, and unauthorized personnel do not have easy entry to your site. We also offer body temperature sensing cameras with facial recognition, which can help you keep track of who is coming and going from your property. With these systems in place, you can rest assured that your job site is safe and secure. This can really help to deter crime and keep employees and customers safe.


The importance of data logging cannot be stressed enough, especially when it comes to construction sites. Maintaining accurate logs of who entered and exited the site, as well as when, can be a daunting task but it is absolutely necessary, especially in order to comply with Local Law 196 in New York City. This law mandate that training logs be kept for all workers on site which ensures only authorized and properly trained personnel are entering and performing tasks on site.

Having a reliable data logging system in place can be a lifesaver for construction companies, not just in terms of compliance but also safety. By being able to track who is on site at all times, companies can quickly identify any potential hazards and address them before they cause any serious damage or injury. In addition, proper data logging can help construction companies stay on schedule by keeping track of the hours worked by each employee. This is essential for maintaining project deadlines and avoiding costly fines.

Thankfully, Sanico USA has systems available that can make data logging quick and easy. We specialize in biometrics access control systems and have solutions that are specifically tailored for construction sites. Our system not only tracks who enters and exits the site, but also records the time and gate used. In addition, our facial recognition software can identify permit holders and subcontractors, making it easy to ensure that everyone on site is authorized to be there. By automating the process of granting access permissions, businesses can save time and money. Employees will no longer need to spend time checking IDs or verifying authorization levels.


Besides theft, one of the other biggest losses is time. If workers or subcontractors are not being tracked and are not showing up, it can go unnoticed, putting you behind schedule. Having to use manpower to produce local law 196 documents can also put you behind not to mention the chaos if you are shut down for these violations. As you can see having an access control system that tracks workers and subcontractors can save a lot of time and possible unforeseen headaches.

As you now know, an access control system provides many benefits for a business or organization. including increased security, decreased liability, and improved efficiency.
