Three Ways to Use an Identification Card

Jun 28, 2008
Identification cards are prevalent and useful in many different types of situations. Whether you have or are considering obtaining an identification card for personal or professional reasons, it can come in handy in various ways.

1-Child Identification Cards

A child identification card is very helpful to have in case of emergency. Ideally, the child would carry his or her ID card; also, any parents, guardians, schools, daycares, or caretakers of the child should keep at least one copy of the child's identification card.

Child identification cards typically include information such as medical emergency information, a photo of the child, his or her date of birth, height, weight, hair color, and any other special identifying information.

Child ID cards would be especially helpful during a medical emergency, or if the child is suddenly missing. For example, if your child collapses in a public place, whoever he or she is with would be able to look at the identification card to identify any medical conditions.

If, God forbid, the child goes missing, the identification cards will give parents a quick and easy way to give all essential information to the local authorities.

To be safe, make sure that you laminate all copies of your children's identification card to prevent smudging and ensure that the card will last for a long time.

2-Employee Identification Cards

Some companies may benefit from the extra security that employee identification cards offer, especially those businesses that protect sensitive information or a large amount of wealth, in one form or another.

Enhanced security features such as holograms go the extra mile to ensure that intruders will not be able to access certain areas of the company.

Employee ID cards also help to give a sense to the community of your workplace. Instead of referring to co-workers as the position that they hold, workers will be able to call their co-workers by name, thus building companionship throughout the office.

3-School Identification Cards

Instead of just being used for identification purposes, school ID badges are starting to be used for many other, helpful purposes ranging from attendance tracking to meal plans to library use and computer use.

Some schools are requesting identification cards that will allow their students to use their ID cards to access the Internet through the school's computers. This would help school administration to filter various websites, making sure that the students are using the Internet for primarily educational purposes.
