    Correct. The German term is Werkschutz.

    Chris-
    This is a cap eagle that is seldom encountered. Thanks for showing it. As you did not ask the question, I know you are aware that it is an original piece.

    The correct word for this cap eagle = Werksicherheitsdienst not Werkschutz. Werksicherheitsdienst
    was the general title for the "Werkschutz der Luftfahrtbetriebe". Official abbreviation WSD. The same
    insignia was also allowed to be worn by fire-brigades from a company (Werkfeuerwehr).
    (Uniformen-Markt, number 24 from December 15, 1937. Page 375 shows the new uniform, page the 377
    the cap badge).

    Hope this helps!
    There surely is a member that owns an actual cap with such a cap badge.
