CrewID® and NATA Safety 1st Team Up to Provide Enhanced Benefits to Customers

CrewID® gives FREE badges to Safety1st participants 

Washington, DC, March 10, 2020 – Last year, an agreement was made between the National Air Transportation Association (NATA) and CrewID® to integrate NATA’s Safety1st Training Center Program into CrewID®’s Global Credentialing System. As part of that agreement, Safety1st Training Center participants will receive a CrewID® badge at no cost. The companies are pleased to announce that, as of this week, the integration is live. 

This integration allows participants, flight crews, and other airport personnel to access an individual’s Safety 1st Ratings in real-time through the CrewID® platform with a quick scan of the CrewID® badge from any mobile device. The CrewID® platform provides instant verification of Safety 1st training credentials, affiliation, and company position. Safety 1st participants are encouraged to claim their free CrewID®.

“Communication and transparency set the tone for an organization’s safety culture. The CrewID® / Safety 1st integration provides the tools to enhance these areas between flight crews and ground handling team members,” said NATA Managing Director of Safety & Training, Michael France. “NATA is excited to once again leverage technology to increase safety awareness and membership value.” 

CrewID® Chief Executive Officer, Michael Sundheim stated, “Partnering with Safety1st significantly raises the bar on safety and security, providing technology resources that were unavailable until recently.”  

To see a demonstration, find us at the NBAA’s Schedulers & Dispatchers Conference (SDC) in Charlotte, NC at booth #1805 and at the New Product Showcase.
