As a follow-up to the Washington Convention and Sports Authority T/A Events DC Director of Public Safety Gerald Wilson's letter regarding the ESCA Worker Identification badge program, the following is additional information regarding the Worker Identification System (WIS) that should give you a better understanding of the program. Please go to ESCA's WIS web page to download a PDF overview of the system, view video demonstrations of working in the online system, and register your company administrator in the system. WIS is a completely web-based program and is designed so that contractors can order their employee badges online on a 24/7 basis.
For your information and for your traveling employees, the WIS badge is also required for working in the following facilities across the country:
Many other facilities across the country are considering implementing the program, so stay tuned for updates on the system as they become available.
