Keep PDX Safe & Secure: Badgeholders Should Be AWARE
What’s the key to keeping PDX safe and secure as a badgeholder? Being AWARE:
Always display your security badge
Wear it above the waist on your outermost garment.
Approach anyone in a restricted area whose badge is not clearly visible.
Review if they’re under escort and, if not,
Engage and ask to see their badge.
Challenging – the act of asking to see someone's badge – is vital because it identifies people who are somewhere they're not supposed to be. If you see someone without a visible badge in a restricted area, you're required to challenge them. Also, you must cooperate with anyone who challenges you by showing your badge.
When challenging someone, confirm their badge photo matches the employee and that the badge is not expired. If they refuse your challenge or don’t have a valid badge, contact the PDX Communications Center at 503.460.4000.
