Airport Security Tests for Workers
Airport workers in Australia will be randomly selected to undergo new tests and checks in an effort to protect Australia’s borders. These new measures will be specifically interested in the prevention of terrorist activity. Transport Minister Darren Chester has reassured that these security checks will make certain airport workers are rightly identified and authorised. This comes after the Government seeked expert consultation for these new measures, includes the worker’s Aviation Security Identification Card restricting access to certain areas. However, many are debating whether measures like explosive detectors should be mandatory in Australian airports. Ronald Bishop, a Senior Lecturer in Aviation from Central Queensland University, spoke to us this morning.
