Which DBS check do I need? – Milkman

Did you know you will need a basic DBS check to work as a milkman in the UK?

DBS checks are statutory criminal record checks designed to protect the public, particularly children and vulnerable adults, from those who are unsuitable for frontline positions.

A basic DBS check for a milkman is a low level CRB check used to check your suitability for frontline work.

A basic DBS check for a milkman will verify whether you have any unspent criminal convictions or conditional cautions.

You can request the check yourself, or it can be requested by an employer on your behalf.

The need for DBS checks is a statutory requirement for frontline workers set out in the 1974 Rehabilitation of Offenders Act. These checks are necessary to safeguard the public, in particular children and vulnerable adults, from potential harm.

A basic check is only a first tier check. It will go no further than searching for any unspent criminal convictions or conditional cautions.

There are an enormous number of other frontline jobs in the UK which also require a basic DBS check. Chefs, gardeners, civil servants, estate agents and mechanics are just some of the many roles which undergo the same degree of vetting.
