Biometric access control in the workplace: benefit or bind?
MetadataShow full item record
Biometrics refers to the measurement of physiological or behavioural characteristics distinctive to an individual. Social acceptance of biometric technology is dependent on society's perception of its value weighed against perceived risks of invasion of privacy. This paper focuses on measures taken by UK-based manufacturers, suppliers and managers of biometric access control systems to implement procedures to address this dichotomy within working environments. The findings provide a practical insight into the methods of applying access control techniques in a variety of workplace environments. They suggest a number of guidelines for achieving maximum social, legal and ethical acceptance from manufacturing, supply and management perspectives.
