Mining Industry Background Checks

Employment Screening for the Mining Industry

The mining industry, as well as manufacturers that support this industry, are facing global challenges in hiring and retention. Entry level positions are often difficult to fill and higher education programs that specialize in industry education graduating enough talent to fill the demand.  Finding, managing and retaining talent is becoming increasingly difficult.

The number of individuals employed in the mining industry is expected to increase 13% over the next five years in the US and Canada alone, while the number of retirees is also expected to increase exponentially, causing a shortage in talent and increased difficulty with qualified placements.

In order to facilitate the quick onboarding of potential new hires, companies will have to be prepared with a streamlined, efficient hiring process. Competition for talent has never been greater. There is a need to screen employees with an accurate product, but also quickly and efficiently.

Recommended Testing Protocols

Members of Mining Standards Task Force (MSTF) recommended in their report a minimum of an 11-panel urine drug test. Other recommended screening procedures include criminal records and a social security number trace.  Workplace safety, protecting the corporate brand and protection of company assets are all factors that influence the need for proper screening procedures.
