To work as a scaffolder in the UK you will need to take a DBS check. DBS checks are statutory criminal record checks for frontline workers.
There are four types of DBS checks in operation in the UK. Under the 1974 Rehabilitation of Offenders Act, any employee who works in a role with a degree of contact with the public is subject to one of these CRB checks.
DBS checks exist to keep the public safe from those who are unsuitable for frontline roles.
The strongest DBS checks are enhanced DBS checks, reserved for those working in the closest contact with the public, particularly children and vulnerable adults.
As a scaffolder your interaction with the public will be limited so you will need a basic DBS check for a scaffolder.
A basic DBS check for a scaffolder will require a search for any unspent criminal convictions or conditional cautions.
Basic DBS checks can be requested by you or your employer.
