Airport employee background checks are critical – but not foolproof
Under US law, people applying to work in secure areas of an airport must pass a vetting process run by the US Transportation Security Administration (TSA) to minimise airport insider threat. But this recent article shows an American Airlines mechanic, arrested in September 2019 for trying to damage an aircraft, had passed that test multiple times.
While airport employee background checks are essential, they are not foolproof. That is why, as our new whitepaper, Separating Hype from Performance: Four Key Criteria for Airport Employee Screening Technology describes, many airports and airlines are interested in Thruvision’s people screening technology to enhance their security regime and address airport insider threat.
Key criteria for airport employee screening technology:
- Addresses employee health, safety and privacy concerns
- Maximises throughput and minimises divestment
- Has independently validated detection performance
- Has a low cost of ownership.
