What is an Access Controller?

An Access Controller is the term given to the person who is responsible for swiping in/out cardholders at a worksite. They can also check job roles and competencies to ensure site compliance, view work restrictions, as well as deny access to site. This is done by scanning a rail industry cardholder card using the RIW App.  

An Access Controller could be for example, but not limited to; the Track Force Protection Coordinator, Protection Officer or the Site Supervisor.
