ID badges and smartcards: useful advice

Please be aware of the following guidance concerning ID badges and smartcards:

  • ID badges should be worn at all times when on duty and never left unattended

  • Smartcards must never be left unattended and must be removed from your computer when leaving your workstation.

  • Smartcards are only for use by the individual it belongs to – never let anybody else use your smartcard and never disclose your smartcard PIN/passcode.
