You thoroughly screen everyone on your payroll and ensure employees meets your high expectations. Great. But, what about the contractors who walk in and out of your building? They aren’t technically your employees. Are they being screened to your standards? Are they being screened at all? How can you ensure that the contractors entering your site match the level of safety and professionalism your organization requires?
We offer a catch-all solution to help alleviate these fears. Our One Source Certified Contractors (OSCC) program requires all contracted personnel to meet set parameters in a background check performed by One Source. Should the contractor fail to pass these set standards, site access will not be granted. Neither you nor the contractor have to decipher full background checks to verify eligibility for site access.
The minimum background check requirements include:
No felony or misdemeanor convictions* for crimes involving weapons, drugs, violence, theft, robbery, burglary, terroristic threats or sexual offenses
A negative drug test for amphetamines, cannabinoids, cocaine, opiates and phencyclidines (Level 2 and up)
Complete compliance with all testing procedures (Level 2 and up)
*OSCC requires that participants have no criminal convictions or ongoing criminal obligations within the stated categories for 5 years on misdemeanor convictions and 7 years on felony convictions.
The OSCC program conducts a rigorous evaluation involving our TotalCheck Plus package. From these checks, we determine whether candidates meet work eligibility requirements. Best of all, site participation in the program is FREE and there is no equipment to purchase. Simply require that all your contractors either provide current One Source Certified Contractors credentials or require non-participating contractors to participate. We ensure everyone entering your organization to work has been checked to a higher standard — the One Source standard.

*Although this screen greatly diminishes the possibility of giving prior or predisposed offenders the opportunity to be working on or in proximity to your site it does not guarantee that the person has no criminal record or should be left unattended. Always be diligent in auditing and watching vendors for the highest level of site security. Verification of the identity of the contractor lies with your organization. Always demand United States Government or State issued identification cards and validate them against the name on the OSCC badge.
