Which DBS check do I need? – Welder/ Fabricator

If you want to work as a welder or fabricator, you will need to take a basic DBS check to confirm your suitability for the role.

What is a DBS or CRB check?

DBS checks are a statutory requirement for employment vetting for all frontline roles in the UK to ensure the public are properly safeguarded from those who are not right for public-facing roles.

During your recruitment process, you can expect your employer to ask you to fill in a DBS application form. The form will be sent to the Disclosure and Barring Service who will carry out the check on behalf of the UK Home Office.

Once complete, you will receive a copy of your DBS certificate in the post and online. Any details found during the search will be listed in the DBS certificate. You will need to show the DBS certificate to your employer to commence the role.

Recruitment for all frontline roles listed in the 1974 Rehabilitation of Offenders Act are subject to the completion of a DBS check.

A basic DBS check for a welder or fabricator in the UK will search for any unspent criminal convictions or conditional cautions.

In the past, a DBS check was called a CRB check so any reference to a CRB check is an old description of what is now known as a DBS check.
