You are in safe hands when you work with Public Realm Services
Public Realm Services (PRS) takes its staff and the clients it works for very seriously. And in doing so, we are committed to ensuring that you can be confident that you are in safe hands. That is why we carry out DBS checks on our staff who work in particular functions.
What is a DBS?
In case you have not heard of a DBS, it is a record check of a person's criminal convictions and cautions – carried out by the Disclosure and Barring Service. DBS checks may also include soft intelligence held by the local police.
Criminal record checks are especially important for PRS as some of the clients we work with are in companies or organisations that have vulnerable groups, such as the work we undertake for schools, where children are in the vicinity. There are three levels of DBS checks, basic, standard and enhanced. The staff at PRS are enhanced checked:
Enhanced level disclosure – this detailed check is also subject to eligibility in accordance with legislative criteria. Individuals who wish to work with vulnerable people are required to have this disclosure.
We are aware that a DBS check has no official expiry date and any information included is accurate at the time the check was carried out; that is why at PRS we carry out further checks every five years.
All of the Grounds Maintenance team have had a recent DBS check; and soon additional staff who may be required to carry out work where there are vulnerable adults or children will be DBS checked in advance.
