IHG Merlin login: Workplace Safety Platform Installation

With employee safety being a critical priority, businesses worldwide are turning to advanced workplace safety platforms. However, for companies new to this technology, selecting and installing these systems can be daunting. Thankfully, by understanding the full installation process, businesses can seamlessly adopt these platforms and avoid costly errors.

How can businesses prepare for a smooth workplace safety platform installation?

Firstly, identify key staff who will be involved throughout the process. IT, operations and security teams often play a central role. Additionally, appoint on-site advocates to liaise with the installation provider. Their first-hand experience will be invaluable for staff adoption further down the line.

Next, collaborate closely with the provider’s field operations team. Discuss requirements in depth during kickoff calls. Review timelines, scheduling, equipment delivery and the step-by-step on-site plan. Ask questions to clear up any uncertainties beforehand.

Once the installation date approaches, ramp up internal communication. Update staff on timeframes, potential disruptions and the overall benefits of enhanced security. This curbs confusion and builds engagement.

What should businesses expect when installation technicians arrive on-site?

The on-site installation process requires close coordination between businesses and provider teams. Advance preparation ensures everything runs smoothly when technicians arrive.

Firstly, technicians will confirm details with the designated contact person – room access, equipment deliveries, layouts and testing protocols. Having floor plans and itemized room lists ready streamlines this process.

For example, in a hotel setting, they may discuss positioning beacons in lobbies, corridors and event spaces.

It’s important that staff feel comfortable with the plan, so technicians will answer any questions thoroughly. They may also request chaperones to accompany them during access to restricted areas, ensuring regulations are followed.

Once the specifics are agreed, trained technicians audit and verify all delivered equipment. This quality assurance step prevents delays from any missing components.

What does the Bluetooth beacon installation process involve for businesses?

Installing a network of Bluetooth beacons across large worksites requires careful planning and execution. Technicians follow a systematic process to optimize coverage and minimize disruptions.

Firstly, they conduct signal testing to determine optimal beacon placements before permanent installation. This confirms which locations provide the most accurate and consistent readings to power robust safety features.

Next, technicians access vacant rooms to rapidly cover low-traffic areas. For occupied rooms, they work alongside chaperones to avoid disturbing guests and ensure privacy regulations are followed. They also liaise with any staff on-site throughout to align on locations.

Importantly, the discrete beacons simply adhere to walls and ceilings with no drilling or wiring required. This prevents infrastructure damage during installation.

With the network in place, technicians then provide personalized training to equip staff with hands-on experience. Ongoing remote training options also help bring new starters up to speed on using the safety platforms day-to-day.
