TWIC cards for working in maritime facilities.
For ports and other government maritime facilities, Painters USA can deliver work crews with TWIC security clearance.
What TWIC cards involve
Painters USA believes in training and certification for everything from product and process knowledge to safety on job sites to security documentation, such as the Transportation Worker Identification Credential or TWIC card for short.
The TWIC card allows our crews to work on or near the nation’s waterways. This security measure keeps people who may pose a threat to our ports from gaining access to secure maritime facilities and vessels. The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) conducts a background check on all who apply for a TWIC card, and only U.S. citizens or people in an eligible immigration category can apply. TWIC cards also require being fingerprinted and photographed.
Value to our commercial / industrial clients
Many of our field employees have fulfilled the requirements set forth by TSA and carry their TWIC cards wherever they go. For companies and organizations with maritime facilities, such as fuel terminals along the Gulf coast, our crews are able to access these sites in accordance with TSA guidelines. If this includes your organization, Painters USA is able to provide industrial cleaning services such as abrasive blasting and power washing, as well as any industrial painting and coating services you need. It's another detail that sets us apart from other contractors.
About the Transportation Security Administration
Most Americans think the only job of TSA (Transportation Security Administration) is to protect commercial air travel, however the agency is tasked with much more. The TSA mission is to safeguard all of the nation's transportation systems to ensure freedom of movement for people and commerce.
