How does a company add and configure a Kiosk or Tablet in the RIW System?


This article details how to configure a kiosk or tablet solution in the RIW System.  Kiosks or tablets can be configured by the RIW Service Desk, an Employer Administrator (where they are the Contractor in Charge for a Project), an Advanced Project Administrator, Project Administrator and Site Administrator.



This instruction applies to the following RIW System User Roles:

  • Advanced Project Admin
  • Employer Admin
  • Employer Admin - No Payment
  • Helpdesk
  • Project Admin
  • Site Admin


Step 1: Log in to the RIW System

Go to https://app.riw.net.au and login using your credentials.


Step 2: Go to Kiosk

Go to the Administration tab and select the Kiosk icon.



Step 3: View or edit kiosks

A list of existing Kiosks at sites linked to the Project(s) accessible by your user role will be displayed. 

From this screen, you can View or Edit an existing Kiosk or Add a new one.


 



Step 4: Add kiosk

To add a new Kiosk, click on the Add button.


Give the Kiosk a Name. This should be unique and clearly identify the individual kiosk (this name will appear in swipe reports). Note that there is a 20-character limit for the name.


Assign this Kiosk to an existing site (start to type the name of an existing site in the Site Name box and select the relevant one from the list displayed). 


Type in a specific Description (it may be helpful to described the kiosk location in more detail (e.g. 2nd Kiosk on Left – Gate 4) to help identify it if maintenance/support is required or the kiosk is to be relocated. Otherwise leave it blank and the description will be automatically filled with the Kiosk name.


Once added, please contact the RIW Service Desk on 1300 101 682 to request the kiosk be validated and assigned a specific client ID and password for kiosk configuration/installation. These details are shared between the RIW system and kiosk manufacturer direct.


Once a Kiosk has been created, the record can be edited by updating the Site Name and Description, which is useful if, for example, the Kiosk is moved to another site.  No further configuration is required when moving a kiosk unit.


Step 5: Configure kiosk to site

The next step is to configure the Kiosks installed at each site. Go to the Administration tab and select the Site tab. 


Select the relevant Site from the list displayed and click Edit.


Step 6: Set kiosk parameters

Select the Kiosks tab.

On this screen the following criteria can be set:

  • BAC Percentage: the percentage of BAC tests required (enter number between 0 and 100). 

Examples: If 100 is entered, every cardholder swiping in will be require a BAC test each time they swipe in; if 50 is entered, there will be a 50% chance of a cardholder being prompted to complete a BAC test on swipe in.

  • BAC Test Required for Rail Workers: tick this flag if cardholders who hold a valid Rail Corridor Access job role for the defined Network) are to be tested. The number of cardholders to take a BAC test is then calculated using the BAC Percentage set.
  • BAC Test Required for Non-Rail Workers: tick this flag if cardholders who do not hold Rail Corridor Access job role are to be tested. The number of cardholders to take a BAC test is then calculated using the BAC Percentage set.

The Rail vs Non-Rail status of a cardholder is determined based on whether they hold the Rail Corridor Access Job Role defined for the Network of the Site (see Note 4 Below).


Step 7: Assign site contacts for kiosk

Click on the Contacts tab.



Up to contacts per site can be added by:

  • searching for an existing RIW cardholder (whose Primary or Secondary Employer is the Contractor in Charge of the selected site) using the Search function and selecting the relevant cardholder from the list presented, then clicking Save


or

  • adding the name, email address and contact number in free text and clicking Save.



Step 8: View summary of site contacts

Contacts will be displayed in the Site Contacts summary list and can be edited or deleted when required.


When editing a contact who is an existing RIW cardholder, only the email address and contact number can be amended, and any changes made to these details will automatically update the cardholder's RIW profile. Deleting a RIW cardholder from the contacts list will not delete the cardholder's profile from the RIW database.


Important notes


Note 1

A successful swipe in at a Kiosk site will automatically swipe out the cardholder from any other site they are currently swiped into, irrespective of the original method used for swiping in the cardholder.


Note 2

When a cardholder is denied a swipe in due to a non-negative BAC test result, an SMS and/or email to this effect will be sent to all Kiosk contacts at the site where the failure was recorded. The cardholder will also be automatically blocked from the site. Such blocks can only be lifted manually by a user with the relevant permission, i.e. a subsequent negative BAC test result will not lift the block automatically. 


Non-Negative BAC test results are recorded on the Swipes tab as Kiosk Access Denied with the Deny Reason BAC Test Non-Negative.


Note 3

Kiosk Breathalyser (BAC) test results are recorded on the cardholder's profile under the D&A Screenings tab as follows:

What type of maintenance is recommended for an RIW System enabled Kiosk or Tablet?


This article details the recommended maintenance and cleaning of an RIW System enabled Kiosk or Tablet solution.


Daily maintenance

  • To maintain an effective working kiosk it is important to keep the touch screen surface and area surrounding the screen clean and free of excessive dust and other objects. To do this we recommend the use of an anti-static, lint-free cloth or micro-fibre cloth. When cleaning your touch screen, treat it with care and do not use aggressive cleaning products on the screen surface and use only a dry, clean cloth.
  • Wipe off any visible marks/dust or build-up off the powder-coated steel body.


Quarterly maintenance

  • Vacuum any dust and debris from inside main area of the kiosk housing, scanner module and PC shelf.
  • Visual check of components for any defects etc.


Annual maintenance

  • Review performance of all components.
  • Check components: scanner, touch screen LCD, label printer etc. are functioning correctly. 
  • 3 years - Check/replace components where required.

What does offline mode mean for an RIW System enabled Kiosk, Tablet or Turnstile?


When an RIW System enabled Kiosk or Tablet goes into offline mode,  there is no internet connectivity to the device.


Kiosks and tablets can operate in this modified state for 72 hours without connectivity.


Please note that during periods of no internet connectivity, kiosks and tablets are not receiving any updates from the RIW System or sending any updates to the RIW System. Once the Kiosk or Tablet comes back online, data will be updated.



Any turnstiles associated with a Kiosk or Tablet at a site that goes into offline mode will continue to provide or deny access based on their kiosks authority to work outcome.




Step 1: Recognise Offline Mode

If the WiFi symbol with a strike through appears in the top right hand corner of the Welcome screen, then the kiosk or tablet is offline.



Step 2: Operation in Offline Mode

While in offline mode, the Kiosk will be able to support cardholder sign in and sign out for all those cardholders who have signed in to the same Kiosk in last 28 days (when online). The Kiosk will complete the authority to work checks for these cardholders based on the authority to work outcome recorded against the cardholder in last 28 days. 


If a cardholder has not signed in to the kiosk in the last 28 days, unfortunately they will be unable to swipe in when a Kiosk is in offline mode.  The cardholder should check with the Site Access Controller or Site Supervisor for access.


If the Kiosk has continuously been in offline mode for more than (72) hours, it will automatically go into ‘Maintenance Mode’ and will not be able to support cardholder sign in or sign out showing the above error.

 

Sign in and sign out records captured in an offline mode will be uploaded to the RIW System once the Kiosk or Tablet is connected back to internet and communications are available.


Please refer to our RIW Knowledge Centre article Kiosk Troubleshooting Guide for directions on troubleshooting issues. In the case of offline mode, please check availability of local network connectivity first.

What happens when an RIW System enabled Kiosk or Tablet is in site closed mode?


When an RIW System enabled Kiosk or Tablet goes into site closed mode, it means the kiosk or tablet is unable to swipe workers in or out of site.  This may be due to an RIW System scheduled service interruption (which will be communicated prior to the event) or an unplanned service interruption.



When a kiosk or tablet is operating in site closed mode, alternative methods for swiping cardholders is advised, such as using the RIW App.


IMPORTANT: If a site has an associated turnstile, the turnstile should be manually powered down/switched off during the service interruption window.



Step 1: Recognise Site Closed Mode

The following site closed message will appear on a kiosk or tablet screen when the site has been closed.



Step 2: Operation in Site Closed Mode

While in site closed mode, the Kiosk will be unable to support cardholder sign in / out or authority to work checks.  Please use an alternative method for checking authority to work, such as using near-field communication to read RIW card data via the RIW App.


Please refer to the RIW System Updates page which will list any planned service interruptions, including the time services will resume.
