Enterprises are liable if they do not duly fulfill their duties, and do not provide external persons with a sufficient degree of protection. VISIT offers support in meeting legal requirements, and assumes different associated tasks.
Companies have different visitors on their premises every day: Customers or business partners come to visit, suppliers deliver goods, applicants take part in job interviews. What matters here is to oversee the situation to properly protect both business property and staff members from unauthorized persons. At the same time, it is important to avoid any hazards for the visitors on the premises. According to the provisions of the German Social Accident Insurance (DGUV), every external person has to be instructed regarding the applicable safety regulations. The DGUV provisions contain regulations and measures with regard to accident prevention for various interest groups.
External persons in particular, such as contractors, members of staff from other sites or visitors shall be explicitly instructed concerning their health and safety. The different groups of persons are subjected to increased risk of an accident, since they enter an unknown territory.
GDPR? Automatically considered in VISIT.
VISIT allows you to meet, for instance, the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation – GDPR. In this case, VISIT fulfills the task of deleting and managing personal data in conformity with data protection requirements with configurable time periods according to pre-defined visit intentions. The content- and time-related limits for the legal data storage and processing are thus also easily monitored and adhered to. Legal bases for the management of external persons are generally governed by a number of acts.
Various periods, cycles and occasions are determined for groups of persons that an enterprise needs to observe. Among other things, the provision regarding the instruction of contractors and visitors on health protection and safety can be found in the Law on Occupational Safety. Yet the Youth Employment Protection Act (Jugendarbeitsschutzgesetzt) has stricter periods in this regard.
