With a pedigree in pre-employment background screening dating to 1989 in Dallas, Texas, FC Background, LLC (FCB) has grown to a nationally recognized provider of jobsite access control systems with a concentration in workforce screening, badging, and workforce monitoring and reporting. Key to FCB’s success has been an unwavering commitment to constantly review industry practices and procedures in light of emerging technology. Growth through applied technology is the cornerstone of FCB’s current business model. This laser beam focus on technology has positioned FCB as a provider-without-equal in the otherwise pedestrian world of construction jobsite access control.
FC Background exists solely to assist the construction community in insuring that unqualified workers do not gain access to the jobsite. Through this commitment, FCB assists the construction community in answering the following question – “Is the person I’m about to allow access to my jobsite who and what he represent himself to be and is he authorized to access the jobsite?” Since inception FCB has answered that question over 7 million times. During that time FCB has developed, refined, and deployed:
- Digitally Recorded Verification Calls
- Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) enabled jobsite access control systems
- Facial Recognition enabled jobsite access control systems
- Mobile technology supporting the field audit of jobsite attendees
Beginning in 2002 FCB’s focus shifted from pre-employment screening to post-employment verification that workers possess the necessary credentials for access to security sensitive worksites. This need most commonly manifests when a workforce must closely interface with a vulnerable population such as construction workers and school children. Today over 75 percent of FCB’s business involves the delivery of commercial construction jobsite access control systems. Current operations include construction projects from coast-to-coast and boarder-to-boarder.
FCB stands alone in applying RFID technology to enable construction management personnel (owners, contractors and insurers) to track worker whereabouts while on the jobsite or when entering or leaving. Our systems include the delivery of pedestrian access portals, vehicle access portals and mobile access portals.
Today, FCB is uniquely capable of verifying workforce eligibility, monitoring their worksite attendance and tracking the tools, material and equipment necessary to accomplish complex tasks in a safe, secure and productive environment.
