Screening is a key element of a strategy for creating and maintaining child-safe organisations and safe environments for other vulnerable people.
ORGANISATIONS: The DCSI Screening Unit provides background screening services to a variety of organisations: large and small, government and non-government, employers and volunteer coordinators. Screening helps to inform decisions about their workforce and any risk to their clients as part of duty of care obligations.
INDIVIDUALS: Individuals who may require screening include employees, job seekers/applicants, students, people working in caring professions (aged care, disability services sector, child-care, carers) as well as public transport drivers, sole traders, self-employed people, and contractors.
