1 XPressEntry Personnel Tracking for Confined Space Entry

2 XPressEntry XPressEntry – the Confined Space Entry management system from Telaeris: Increases Safety Saves Time Improves Record Keeping

3 XPressEntry Features Provides audited access control for vessels and confined spaces Live audited entries and exits Many portals on multi-level structure Provide accurate tracking of personnel Provide improvements over existing paper based systems. Work appropriately in a refinery environment High metal content (vessel wall, pipes, scaffolding) Dirt, oil, grease, and water does not affect systems Provides for Easy Method of Tracking Personnel Locally Controlled Immediate knowledge of entries, exits & occupants Visible from any Internet enabled web browser Full reporting features

4 XPressEntry Architecture Web Publishing of Access Control Events Job Foreman at Cart monitors employees entries, exits, and occupancy Mobile Cart Provides Immediate View of Access Control Info Information Available on Internet Enabled Computer

5 Increasing Safety with XPressEntry Know whos inside with live occupancy count and roster at your fingertips –At the entry point (for safety attendants) –On-site computer (for safety supervisor) –On the web (for project managers) Prevent unauthorized entry –Only approved workers allowed

6 Saving Time with XPressEntry Logging entries digitally is significantly faster than using paper logs For workers: –Less time waiting in line to enter –More time on the job For safety attendants: –Less time making log entries –More time monitoring safety

7 Saving Time with XPressEntry How safety supervisors & project managers save time: Activity history is instantly viewable –No time spent reconciling paper logs or entering data Adding new people to the authorized list is fast

8 Better Records with XPressEntry View occupancy in real time Activity history –Updated automatically –Easily searchable Reports –Available in multiple formats –Can be generated from the web Improved accuracy over paper logs Data backed up in multiple locations

9 How XPressEntry works: The XPressEntry system uses several interconnected components: –Handheld readers at the entryways –On-site server at the job site –Wifi network equipment at the job site –Web server (offsite)

10 How XPressEntry works: At entry point: –Safety attendant has handheld reader –Workers badge gets scanned upon entry or exit –Authorized workers will have their entry recorded –Information sent wirelessly to on-site server

11 How XPressEntry works: At the on-site server cart: –Safety supervisor sees activity from all handhelds –Information sent to web site via Internet connection

12 How XPressEntry works: On the web, Job Foremen & Project Managers can: –View occupancy –View activity history –Create reports of activity by user, company, or date –Add or edit information about users, companies & confined spaces

13 How XPressEntry works: Wireless network that connects handheld devices to on-site server Secure Portable Modular Designed for outdoor use Battery backup in case of power disruption

14 On-site Server Cart Features: Mobile broadband Internet connection Printer for reports Battery backup Badge Reader for adding new users Portable cart for all environments Can serve as muster point check-in station during evacuations

15 XPressEntry Handheld Features: Proximity Card Reader Easy to use interface –View Occupants –View Activity –View List of Authorized Entrants –Send Message to Server Drop-proof Optional shoulder strap

16 Comparing XPressEntry The XPressEntry system provides major benefits over using traditional paper log systems: –Saves time during entries and exits –Saves time when viewing activity –Information at your fingertips

17 Comparing XPressEntry Lets see the time difference between XPressEntry and paper logs during an incident requiring evacuation of the confined space

18 XPressEntry VS Paper Logs During an Incident Comparing XPressEntry and Paper Logs: –During a confined space incident, how long does it take to ensure all workers are evacuated and safely accounted for? Scenario: A multi-level confined space has four entryways and twenty workers inside when sparks from a welder start a fire inside Time Elapsed XPressEntry Paper Logs

19 XPressEntry VS Paper Logs During an Incident The evacuation alert is given The 20 workers start to evacuate: –XPressEntry: each worker taps their badge to the attendants handheld reader as they exit –Paper Logs: the attendant has to identify the worker and record the workers name and exit time Time Elapsed XPressEntry Paper Logs

20 XPressEntry VS Paper Logs During an Incident After the workers appear to have evacuated, the safety monitor needs to ensure that everyone is outside, and accounted for: –XPressEntry: The handheld devices have already updated the on-site server. Safety monitor takes a quick look at live information and sees: Vessel occupancy is zero Each workers exit time and entryway used –Paper Logs: The safety monitor radios all the attendants and they start manually cross-checking logs to make sure that all entrants eventually exited somewhere – or has to do a roll call at the evacuation point Time Elapsed XPressEntry Paper Logs

21 XPressEntry VS Paper Logs During an Incident Emergency crews enter the vessel to put out the fire, and know that no one is trapped inside the vessel. In the time it takes the paper log users to record all the workers as they evacuate, the XPressEntry users have: –Recorded all workers as they evacuated –Ensured that all workers are accounted for –Allowed emergency crews to start incident containment Time Elapsed XPressEntry Paper Logs

22 XPressEntry VS Paper Logs During an Incident XPressEntry saves time over paper logs – when every second counts Time Elapsed XPressEntry Paper Logs

23 Comparing XPressEntry Now lets compare the time savings between XPressEntry and paper logs in a routine procedure: –Having workers enter the confined space at the start of a work shift

24 XPressEntry VS Paper Logs Start of the Shift Comparing XPressEntry and Paper Logs: –During a routine work shift for a confined space, how long does it take to have all the workers enter properly? Scenario: Ten workers need to enter the confined space through a particular attendant- monitored entryway Time Elapsed XPressEntry Paper Logs

25 XPressEntry VS Paper Logs Start of the Shift XPressEntry –Each worker taps their badge to the safety attendants handheld reader. –Reader instantly records their name, company, time of entry, and where they entered. –The attendant verifies that the ID matches the worker, and the worker enters. Time Elapsed XPressEntry Paper Logs

26 XPressEntry VS Paper Logs Start of the Shift Paper Logs –Safety attendant reviews the badge and writes down the workers name, and time of entry on their log. –Attendant verifies that the ID matches the worker, and the worker enters. Time Elapsed XPressEntry Paper Logs

27 XPressEntry VS Paper Logs Start of the Shift The ten workers reach the entryway: XPressEntry: Tapping the badge, verifying the worker – takes about 5 seconds. –Last worker waits 50 seconds before entry Paper Logs: Writing down worker name and entry time, verifying the worker – takes about 20 seconds. –Last worker waits more than 3 minutes before entry Time Elapsed Paper Logs XPressEntry

28 XPressEntry VS Paper Logs Start of the Shift Total time spent waiting and entering: XPressEntry: –4.6 person-minutes for 10 workers –A shift of 20 workers entering takes less than 2 min., total time spent for 20 is 17.5 person-minutes Paper Logs: –18.3 person-minutes for 10 workers –A shift of 20 workers entering takes more than 6 min., total time spent for 20 is 70 person-minutes Time Elapsed 10 workers in 20 workers inXPressEntry Paper Logs 20 workers in

29 XPressEntry VS Paper Logs Start of the Shift Extra benefits over Paper Logs: XPressEntry protects data: –Data backed up to server and web –Occupancy and activity information at your fingertips Paper Logs prone to data loss: –Paper logs easily lost or damaged –Handwritten log entries may be illegible Time Elapsed 10 workers in 20 workers inXPressEntry Paper Logs 20 workers in

30 XPressEntry VS Paper Logs Start of the Shift XPressEntry saves time at the start of the shift – meaning that workers spend more time on the job, sooner. Time Elapsed 10 workers in 20 workers inXPressEntry Paper Logs 20 workers in

31 XPressEntry The XPressEntry system is ideal for sites with: Complex or multiple permit-required confined spaces Multiple workers entering and exiting

32 XPressEntry XPressEntry is suited for: Petrochemical refinery turnarounds Manufacturing plant maintenance Storage tank farm maintenance Underground utility access

33 XPressEntry XPressEntry for monitoring entry to confined space Increasing Safety Saving Time Improving Record Keeping
