Are Electrical Contractors DBS Checked?

The CRB and the ISA have merged to become the DBS so CRB checks are now DBS checks.

The Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) and the Independent Safeguarding Authority (ISA) have merged to become the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) so CRB checks are now called DBS checks.

Working in schools and FE colleges, there should be arrangements in place with contractors to make sure that any of the contractor’s staff working regularly in the premises with the opportunity for contact with children, ;the contractor has obtained a barred list check and an enhanced criminal records check.

For contractor’s staff who do not work regularly at a school but may have contact with children, it is up to head teachers and principals to use their professional judgment to decide whether to request a criminal records check and how to supervise these workers.
