The use of identification (ID) cards in our society is something which gets plenty of coverage in the UK media. There is widespread distrust of people having their personal information on a national ID card and also of our employers being able to track us as and when we use our professional ID/swipe cards. However, there are some areas of everyday life where we find it reassuring to see people of certain professions displaying their ID for all to see.
Corporate Employees In office environments, ID cards identify an employee to other staff as well as providing basic security. They can also be used to restrict access to certain locations or departments.
Government Employees When dealing with classified and private information, security is crucial. ID cards are an essential way to maintain security and to keep track of which individual has been given access to certain information and also to record when it was accessed.
Hospital Employees In an environment where care is the most important aspect, just letting patients and relatives know the names of their respective care team can be very reassuring. For security and professional reasons, ID cards are needed to establish that certain employees are in their respective departments and responsibility can be monitored.
Hotel Staff Employees Large hotels use ID cards to ensure that secure areas such as key and swipe card depositories are accessed only by their staff. As well as providing security, this also creates a professional image and makes guests feel more comfortable.
Construction Industry Employees Security on a construction site can be important. Without an ID card, anyone could walk onto the site and walk off with tools or supplies. It also helps site dynamics as a quick look at someone's ID can immediately reveal exactly what their job function is.
