TDS Case Study – The Solution to Safety at Janssen PharmaceuticalsAugust 13, 2018
TDS (Time Data Security) Ltd. have been working with Janssen Pharmaceuticals Ireland to ensure ahighlevel of safety and security at the Cork facility. The system incorporated different aspects from the TDS Enterprise Management Suite to meet the needs of the large pharmaceutical.
Janssen is a company of Johnson & Johnson and has been operating in Cork since 1981. The site in Little Island is a manufacturing site for worldwide distribution of medicines and vaccines. With offices across the five continents and over 40,000 employees, Janssen Pharmaceuticals is a top ten global leader in pharmaceuticals. A high profile company that deals with chemicals and other sensitive materials requires a high level of protection of both the safety of on-site personnel and security on the site as a whole.
Janssen chose TDS as their security partners to implement a system that was tailored to the specific site requirements of the pharmaceutical.
It was essential that Janssen secured every area of the Little Island site. TDS Access was able to provide the facility withcontrols for each entry point with access control terminals throughout the site. This was important in ensuring access rights were controlled across different areas. TDS also provided Janssen with badge printing to allow for the high number of new personnel entering the site on a regular basis. The system was also integrated with Time and Attendance as an accurate and effective means of monitoring attendance at the company.
Janssen is committed to safeguarding their employees against risks that exist in a pharmaceutical manufacturing facility and a key requirement for the company was that the system that Janssen implemented would have measures addressing safety in an emergency scenario. The customisable design of TDS Access meant that the system could include the safety information panel and emergency head count features to their safety measures. The safety information panel updates in real-time as to who is leaving and entering the site and emergency head counting supports emergency response to accurately determine risks in an emergency.
TDS Access offers an innovative means of securing large facilities such as Janssen Pharmaceuticals. The solution was able to provide Janssen with a system that enhanced safety while securing the site and monitoring attendance. The flexible design of TDS Access technology enables a variety of complex needs to be met.
