How can you ensure that your contractors are performing background checks equal to the high-quality checks you are using in your organization? With so many cut-rate companies out there providing inferior background checks — many contractors performing no checks at all, it is quite possible that when you have contractors on site, their employees could have a criminal history.
The One Source Certified Contractors program allows contractors to check the backgrounds of their employees and determine their eligibility for site access. You and the contractor do not have to decipher full background checks to verify eligibility for site access. The interpreting has already been done by One Source. A green or red color notation indicates whether an employee “Meets Requirements” or “Does Not Meet Requirements.”
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)

The One Source Certified Contractors program conducts a rigorous check that includes TotalCheck Plus. 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 buy. Simply require that all your contractors either provide current One Source Certified Contractors or require your non-participating contractors to participate. This ensures they have been checked to a higher standard — the One Source standard.
*One Source Certified Contractors 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.

*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.
