StayLive: From Cheque Book to PayWave
Empowering an ecosystem with digital proof of ID and competency.
StayLive is an industry-based forum that brings together competitor companies to collaborate and drive sustainable improvements to health and safety across the industry.
Key concerns for StayLive were assuring the competency of its industry workforce, meeting all safety requirements across various work sites and reducing cost, due to inefficiencies from duplicated training and manual handling of records.
The universal way for a worker demonstrating they are qualified to enter a site and do a particular job is via the Green Book – a paper book, with a list of an individual's certifications. This includes any site inductions they’ve completed or training sessions they’ve undertaken that they require to be on-site.
StayLive uncovered incidents where the Green Book was being used fraudulently, and records doctored so that jobs could be completed.
Jarrod Bowler, Group Manager Safety and Wellness at Genesis Energy said, “The problem for us as an industry is that there is very little assurance that goes into the Green Book, it relies on people doing the right thing with minimal quality controls and as asset owners, that's incredibly problematic.”
The StayLive Competency Tool (SCT), powered by JNCTN’s cloud-based Credential Management platform, is enabling the effective capture and proof of training and competency records in real-time from any digital device.
The tool allows workers accessing energy sector facilities across New Zealand to prove their identity from their digital device and validate that they have verified training, qualifications and site inductions required to carry out the work.
Workers use a QR code, which can be scanned on-site to give instant access to their relevant data from a mobile app or a card can be issued to bridge the digital divide.
Competency data is owned by the individual giving them control over their profile, and the ability to instantly share their data with anyone who needs to verify their status.
Training organisations can certify workers and assign credentials instantly at the end of an induction or course, meaning workers can go straight to the job with no delay.
The real upside of going digital is there’s no more confusion and hassle of maintaining the Green Book.
