i know that lots of factories won't allow photography for this reason--i
unsuccessfully tried to talk my way into a US steel plant here, and this
was the gist of the excuse i was given.

on a related note, one of the malls around here allows photography but no
tripods, as they fear liability from someone tripping.  beanbags are the
only real alternative.
