Workers’ Comp. Reps. in Cambridge and Logan: The Industrial Commission Needs Your Picture!

CAMBRIDGE — Regular visitors to the Industrial Commission of Ohio’s (IC) Cambridge and Logan district offices may now opt to have security ID badges issued to them for expedited electronic check-in. Once their badge picture is taken, they’ll be able to simply swipe and go!

“If you decide not to get a security badge, a computer sits next to the security guard and visitors will type in their name to check-in, and then use the computer to checkout when their visit is over,” said Director of Security Services Robert Booker.

The Cambridge IC office will be taking pictures of regular visitors, such as workers’ compensation attorneys and representatives, on December 13 from 9am to 12pm, and December 15 from 1pm to 3pm. Our Logan office will be taking pictures between 9am and noon on December 14.

This new sign-in system will enhance security and convenience by allowing frequent customers to simply badge in and out of IC buildings. At the same time, it will provide a more efficient way to track who is in IC buildings in case of emergency. In addition, the IC’s Information Technology Department designed the system and used an existing computer terminal, so no additional costs were incurred.

“Electronic sign-in will save money by reducing paper costs and increasing efficiencies,” said IC Executive Director Christa Deegan. “It has been so successful in Columbus that we are rolling out the sign-in process to our 11 other offices across the state.”

Industrial Commission Announces New Security Camera Installation

COLUMBUS – To provide maximum security for our employees and customers, the Industrial Commission of Ohio (IC) is installing new security cameras at all offices statewide within the next two months.

“Employee and customer safety are top priorities,” said IC Chairperson Gary DiCeglio. “Whether you are in a large office in Cleveland or a small office in Logan, the safety measures will be the same.”

In all, 32 cameras will service 11 IC district offices by the end of January 2011. The cameras are being installed only in the public areas of each IC office. The cameras have motion detection software that will be engaged after each office closes for the day.

“The goal of the project is to eliminate any security “blind spots” that may be in an office,” DiCeglio said. “Security cameras will enhance public safety and deter burglary and theft.”

Currently, our Cambridge, Logan and Portsmouth district offices already have cameras in place. After the installation is complete, IC security personnel will be able to see every public area of each office at all times. From our Columbus headquarters, the IC Director of Security Services, Robert Booker, will be able to monitor the video feeds of all cameras throughout the state.

“We hope the public understands the Industrial Commission of Ohio takes safety and security very seriously,” DiCeglio said. “It is important to for our customers to know that they are safe when doing business with our Agency.”

The Industrial Commission of Ohio serves injured workers and Ohio employers through expeditious and impartial resolution of issues arising from workers’ compensation claims, and through establishment of adjudication policy. The Commission, headquartered in Columbus, has five regional and seven district offices throughout the state. The IC conducts more than 160,000 hearings annually.
