I don’t see how this can happen. The badges, especially a badge issued with SIDA access are only issued at the airport security office (not the TSA, by the way) after a background check and fingerprinting. That goes for all badges, even contractors. The only thing I can think of is that they had visitor badges that requires them to be “under control” of a badged person. (the rules usually specify that those under escort must be within a very slim physical distance from the escort. A supervisor who might or might not be someplace on the worksite is unacceptable.)
