Seven Safe Steps to Monitoring Transient Agency Workers
Once an Agency Worker has been interviewed all checks to be completed within 7 working days.
1. If we are unable to complete the checks within 7 working days due to DBS and/or references not being returned,the following check will be updated: references, DBS update service and EWC before the Agency Worker will be offered work.
2. At no stage will the Agency Worker be offered work until all checks are complete.
Continuous Safeguarding checks are under taken and are dependent on the gap in service of the Agency Worker. As follows:
3. Prior to the Agency Worker’s first assignment
Agency Worker’s pack is audited if first day of work is less than 20 days since registration.If the gap in employment is more than 20 days since registration the Agency Worker’s checks are updated according to the gap in service with Bay Resourcing.
5. Gap in service of between 56 – 120 days
DBS and EWC checks undertaken and any gap in employment when not working for Bay Resourcing is accounted for.
6. Gap in service of between 121 – 365 days
DBS and EWC checks undertaken and any gap in employment when not working for Bay Resourcing is accounted for. Up to date references are obtained
7. Gap in service of over 1 year
Agency Workers need to completely re - register (unless they have been continually working in an educational setting during the period of not
working with us (ie employed in a school or studying in University) * If an agency worker has not joined the update service, the agency worker will be asked to undertake a new DBS if the gap shows they have not been working regularly in schools.
