The Transportation Worker Identification Credential (TWIC) Card is a biometric tamper-resistant card identifying that a worker has passed a threat assessment by the Department of Homeland Security. The assessment considers convictions, arrest warrants and indictments for certain offenses. Many refineries and energy plants now require these government-issued TWIC cards to enter their facilities. Corrado American’s employees hold TWIC cards, ensuring we provide you a respectable crew.
Originally formed to address the need for uniform training of contract workers in petrochemical plants, the Association of Reciprocal Safety Councils (ARSC) now sponsors safety training for many industrial environments. Basic Orientation Plus (BOP) prepares the worker to perform various duties in the safest possible manner. All Corrado American employees have completed BOP training and hold the BOP badge indicating training type and expiration date.
