Perimeter and Facility Security
Oil refineries and oil extraction plants are large facilities. They are also combination of many large facilities working together in the same very large area. Therefore oil refineries have units for hydrocracking, dimerization, distillation, visbreaking, alkylation and more, storage areas for oil feedstock and other bulk liquids, warehouses for equipment, medical facilities and many more.
They are self-contained strategic cities of international importance and need to be treated as such from a security perspective.
IDCUBE’s Access360 platform for oil extraction units and refineries marshals its access management offering (HRView), vehicle monitoring and management offering (VAM), surveillance operation (CCTV Gateway), visitor and contract worker management solution (ezVisit) and elevator access product (ELEVATE) to provide a complete perimeter and facility security solution.
Access policies can be configured centrally in HRView and ezVisit (specific cases) and specialized solutions such as VAM, CCTV gateway and ELEVATE can be integrated with these and with legacy applications to provide a 360 degree security experience with analytics, diagnostics and forensics.
Disaster Response: Evacuation management
Security administrators can configure entire facilities as physical and logical access zones using HRView’s ZoneDraw feature. Access policies can then be applied to each such zone. HRView’s HawkEye gives real time information of movement of people and assets in these zones.
This is particularly useful in fire drills and actual evacuation exercises. HRView is able to provide accurate information on number of employees who have reached a muster point safely and which employees (or visitors) are trapped in which area of the facility.
Work shift management
Time and attendance monitoring are logical extensions of access management. With HRView’s work shift management feature, complex operational shifts across the entire oil processing terminal and facility can be configured and managed.
User friendly interfaces, access rules that mirror pan-organizational access control configurations and detailed reports assist personnel in managing and monitoring attendance and access of core and temporary staff operating in different shifts.
Tracking movement of people, assets and vehicles
HawkEye in HRView, works for all software built on the Access360 platform to provide real time tracking and tracing of people, assets and vehicles. AssetPro helps identify and authenticate assets while linking them to their rightful owners and personnel responsible for the upkeep. ezVisit helps track visitors and contract staff while VAM tracks movement of vehicles.
All these solutions acting in tandem and working out of central command centers of oil terminal and refineries provide accurate asset, vehicle and people tracking solutions.

It provides for hassle-free cashless food ordering and payment, single-point administration of corporate benefits linked to dining and refreshments, analysis of cafeteria usage (popular menu items, rush hour usage and more) and easy administration, efficient vendor management.
