TWIC Cards & Working in the Nation’s Maritime Facilities
Painters USA believes in training and certifying our crews in many different areas from product & process knowledge to safety on jobsites to special credentials issued by the federal government. One such area is the special documentation known as the Transportation Worker Identification Credential or TWIC card for short.
The TWIC card allows our crews access to work on or near the nation’s waterways. It is a security measure to ensure people who may pose a threat to our ports cannot access these vital maritime facilities & vessels and cause any harm. The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) conducts a background check on all who apply for a TWIC card. Without the TWIC card, no admittance is allowed to these ports, vessels, & waterways.
Painters USA is proud to say many of our field employees have fulfilled the requirements set forth by the TSA and carry their TWIC cards wherever they go. Whether we are working at fuel terminals along the Texas coast or the rivers & waterways of Illinois, our crews are able to access these sites legally & in accordance with TSA guidelines - just another detail the Painters USA goes the extra mile for while many other contractors don’t.
“very respectful throughout the week. We are very impressed with their work.
