Identifying specific hazards:
OTS basics HBS - X-ray image interpretation in hold baggage control Basic Training

Why is hold baggage screening carried out?
Which items are prohibited and where?
How can prohibited items be identified?
What features of the X-ray machine are available to support detection?

OTS Basics HBS is an advanced module that seamlessly builds on the introduction to X-ray image interpretation with OTS basics. Based on the internationally applicable regulations for baggage in air transport, future screeners learn how to use the X-ray machine with subject-specific content. For hold baggage, the focus is on the detection of Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs). IEDs in particular are difficult to detect due to their variability, and your screeners will rarely encounter many of the items shown in their future work. It is therefore essential that screeners are trained in the safe detection of these items before they start work.
