Location Analysis – Return Time
Using Return Time Report
In the Time Profile you select for this return time report, specify the target return times on each day of the week for the primary and (optionally) secondary times. Setup the times to suit also.
Then, when you run the report, set the maximum Gap time, in minutes, past which you want the location to be non-compliant.
When the report is run, those locations not meeting your return time target or with longer gaps than you specify will be non-compliant and you can see them quickly. You can use the “exception” tick box to only show non compliant locations.
A Better Return Time and Risk Indication Method
Location Analysis calculates Return Time by the same way as the older Return Time Report, but is also adds a means to make a location non compliant if there is a gap greater than the maximum you set. This is important. It adds a valuable check.
So. If you specify a return time target of 20 minutes in the time Profile, and your attendances meet or better this – you can set a maximum permissible gap past which the location is marked as non-compliant.
Why would you? Easy. Imagine your return time is calculated at 18 minutes, then in the middle of the day there is a gap of 60 minutes during which there are no attendances. This large gap time is a significantly increased risk period. If there is a hazard left un-attended, the risk is ofan accident increased.
The Location Analysis Return Time option alerts you to these otherwise hidden problems – gaps that increase risk.
