What are DBS Checks?

The DBS refers to the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS). Until 2012, the duties were the responsibility of the Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) and the Independent Safeguarding Authority (ISA). The DBS is responsible for criminal record checks in order to establish those unsuitable to work with children and vulnerable adults. In addition, the DBS bars individuals from employment positions that could put children, adults, or personal documentation at risk.

There are four levels of DBS check: Basic, Standard, Enhanced and Enhanced with Barred List checks. Within the confinement of the law, we ensure that our contractors obtain the highest level of checks possible.

DBS Checks ensure our contractors are suitable to carry out installations and maintenance in all types of commercial premises. For example, any buildings that accommodate children or vulnerable adults, including, schools, hospitals, and residential homes. All members of our team hold certificates which identify previous convictions, cautions, reprimands, warnings or any other relevant information from the police that warrants disclosure. Similarly, we provide the maximum protection for our customers by carrying out a Barred List Check wherever possible. These checks identify those that the law prevents from working with adults, children, or both.
