NASA Security Badge Poses Safety Risk

On August 15th, a NASA Safety Notice issued at Kennedy Space Center warned that NASA's new Identity Stronghold badge holder has the "potential to introduce dangerous Foreign Object Damage (FOD) to flight hardware areas and can cause personnel injury if the metal clips are installed improperly."

The badge holder's metal clasps, if installed backwards, "will become a projectile when the badge is opened creating a potential eye injury hazard," the Safety Notice says. "When removing your badge, do not point end with metal clips towards your face or another person."(more here)

We say: Our simple, but effective SkimSafe badge holders offer the same technology protection in an elegant, safe design. With our recent FIPS201 approval it will be nice to have these available as samples at the upcoming ASIS Conference & Exhibits.
