TSCA CBI Training - Access

Access to a TSCA CBI Secure Storage Area.

If you work with TSCA CBI, the chances are pretty good that you work in a "CBI-secure" area, also called Secure Storage Area (SSA).This means that there is restricted access to your area that requires you to use your ID card for entry and that there are alarms and motion detectors that protect the entire area.

What this also means is that you should learn the procedures for opening and securing SSAs. Even if you don't work in a "CBI-Secure" area, one day you might have to open or secure an SSA, so this part of the course should still be useful for you.
