Transport Sector Background Checks are an invaluable pre-employment screening solution for both Department for Transport (DFT) regulated operations and independent businesses.

If you work within a DFT regulated area, you may already be aware of the sort of Background Checks required for your operations. If not, you will almost certainly be aware of the high penalties associated with non-compliance. With our Transport Sector Background Checks, we can help to ensure that your employment practices comply with regulation. Outsourcing your candidate screening to an expert third party allows your staff to focus on other tasks, saving you valuable time and money.

Recommended Checks: Include

Identity Check

DVLA Check

Reference Checks

We run Transport Sector Background Checks on the following DFT regulated areas: airlines and airport operators, train operators, port and maritime companies, regulated cargo agents and known consignors and non-regulated areas: couriers and other delivery companies, road transport operators, haulage firms and logistics providers

Transport Sector Background Checks allow you to recruit and maintain a skilled and reliable workforce. Properly screened personnel is your first line of defence against the damages to integrity and reputation that can arise from poor employment choices.

Furthermore, in the transport and logistics sector, long distance travel is often a major part of a company’s operations. Should an employee ever be involved in a collision whilst driving on company time, the Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act 2007 could hold the employer responsible. Thorough Transport Sector Background Checks are therefore essential for safeguarding your business against any breaches of due diligence.
