Haifa, Israel (PRWEB) June 20, 2012
Findings from first in-depth research held in eight European airports by the BEMOSA Project will be presented at an Open Workshop for Airport Security Professionals in Brussels.
Almost half of all security employees in European airports do not trust technology devices, such as X-ray machines, to detect security threats, according to the first in-depth study of European airports conducted by the EU-funded BEMOSA Consortium.
These and other results will be presented at a special workshop hosted by BEMOSA (Behaviour Modelling for Security in Airports) in Brussels on July 10, 2012.
The report, based on over 500 interviews and 700 ethnographic observations held at airports across Europe, found that nearly half of security employees did not trust technology or did not regard it as the best way to detect threats.
The findings raise serious considerations: if workers do not trust basic security procedures, what can we expect of passengers?
