Construction Industry Background Checks

The construction industry is under constant demand to fill positions quickly and at the same time, deal with high turnover. Performing background checks for employees is especially crucial to reduce turnover by hiring the right employee in the first place.

A reliable screening program can decrease the risk of hiring an unreliable employee, reduce turnover, and help to maintain a safe workplace. By supplementing OSHA standards with FCRA compliant background check procedures, your company can increase performance, safety record and productivity.

Construction industry workers are in danger of risk from workplace accidents and the industry is in need of quality screening procedures so that only the most qualified workers are hired. After background checks have been performed to screen reliable hires, random drug and alcohol testing on-site is an excellent strategy to use in keeping work-sites safe. Post-accident testing and reasonable suspicion testing is a convenient way to test these workers anywhere, at any time. It does not matter what part of the county your company or job site is located, Crimcheck has access to labs throughout the U.S.
