A Heathrow Airport security guard was given a police warning after he was allegedly caught staring at images of a female colleague in a body scanner.
The 25-year-old worker was quizzed by police over alleged remarks he made to his co-worker after she entered a scanner by mistake.
The incident took place at Terminal 5 on 10 March.
It is believed to be the first time an airport worker has been disciplined for abusing a body scanner.
The scanners show clear outlines of passengers' anatomies.
"It is only through appropriate training and monitoring that we can ensure that the risk of breaches of discrimination and human rights laws by those who take and use the scanned images of passengers are minimised.
"The government has told us very little about what systems are currently in place to ensure that those employed to use the scanners are acting lawfully, with fairness and without discriminating."
She added that the government needed to take urgent and decisive action to ensure that "incidents of this kind are not repeated".
"A first instance harassment warning has been issued to a 25-year-old male."
