Automate BAC checks with Doorkeeper Pro

According to the Alcohol & Drug Foundation, alcohol use contributes to 11% of workplace accidents and injuries.

Like with any other occupational health and safety issue, Australia’s OHS Act and Regulations require the assessment and mitigation of related hazards and risks via policies and procedures that address the specific circumstances of the workplace. Alcohol and drug workplace testing programs are one example.

Nirovision integrates with Alcolizer and AlcoMeasure breath testing units, to automate testing and provide instructions and alerts at entry points.

Turning an iPad into a fully-featured check-in kiosk, Nirovision’s AI is able to detect a face and initiate a breath alcohol test. The results are recorded against each check-in and stop instructions are displayed if someone fails a test, with Admins receiving a real-time notification.

Combined with documents and access control integrations, access can be automated to ensure staff, visitors and contractors meet all the requirements for entry.

Integration benefits

📄 Instruct visitors to take a breath test as part of the check-in process.

When BACs are enabled, Doorkeeper will direct individuals to take the test as the first step of the check-in process. If an issue arises, the check-in process stops and no access will be granted.

🛑 Display STOP instructions if BAC is above a threshold.

Doorkeeper will display Admin details upon an elevated value -as defined by the site’s thresholds-, to help your visitors know what to do.

🛑 Admins get notifications for high BAC.

Real-time push and email notifications (iOS and Android) are triggered every time someone is stopped, and include a reference to the site and location where it happened.

🔢 Automatically log BAC results for each person.

Nirovision simplifies record keeping by collecting results automatically, and updating the corresponding entry record. This information can be reviewed from anywhere via the Nirovision applications, and exported.

🔌 Leverage integrations for more stringent controls.

Doorkeeper can be linked to Access Control systems to automate access. More conditions of entry can be added by integrating with a temperature sensor and adding survey and file requirements. Read about all available integrations here.

How does it work?

Available in Doorkeeper Pro.

1. Someone required to do a BAC approaches Doorkeeper.

Nirovision allows for the creation of multiple sign-in flows with different requirements based on the type of visitor, so BAC can be required for everyone or one or more groups of people.

When someone required to do a BAC approaches Doorkeeper, they’ll be instructed to perform a BAC as the first step of the registration process. That way, if an elevated value is detected, the individual can be denied access on the spot, notifying all relevant stakeholders.

2. Doorkeeper initiates the breath alcohol test.

Once a face is detected, Doorkeeper will initiate the test by sending a command to the breathalyser. The device will display a message as soon as testing can commence. Some devices also make a sound.

First-timers will be asked to select their corresponding entry workflow via the Welcome screen, in order to determine if the individual in question is required to do a BAC or not.

When the test has been completed on the device, Doorkeeper will display the result as soon as available.

3. If the value detected falls under the threshold, Doorkeeper will advance the check-in process.

If there are no additional requirements, Doorkeeper will check the person in, and trigger any other subsequent integrations, like opening a door or updating payroll.

If the person needs to complete a survey, provide a document, or third-party compliance checks need to be performed (to workforce management applications like Rapid Global), Doorkeeper will guide them through the process, step by step.

4. However, if an elevated value is detected, the process will be immediately stopped.

Real-time push and email notifications (iOS and Android) are triggered every time someone is stopped, and include a reference to the site and location where it happened. This information can be reviewed from anywhere via the Nirovision applications, and exported.

Nirovision simplifies record keeping by collecting results automatically, and updating the corresponding entry record.
