Background Checks on Employees for Manufacturing and Industrial Companies
In manufacturing and industrial settings, employee background checks can help:
Maintain Workplace Safety – Screen employees who will be working with heavy equipment, dangerous machinery or toxic chemicals.
Reduce Turnover – Avoid hiring unreliable employees to reduce absenteeism and turnover-related costs.
Protect the Company and its Reputation – Prevent theft and workplace violence. Screen employees who interact with the public, such as repairmen and delivery truck drivers.
Common Background Checks Requested:
– Hiring employees who are free of illegal drugs can help prevent on-the-job accidents and maintain product quality.
Criminal Background Check
– Check applicants’ criminal history in order to guard against theft, workplace violence and other unethical conduct.
Social Security Trace Search
– Verify social security numbers of potential employees, while also obtaining any additional addresses or aliases that the applicant may have failed to disclose on the job application.
I-9 Employment Verification (E-Verify)
– Electronically compare information entered on the Employment Eligibility Verification, Form I-9, with records contained in SSA and Department of Homeland Security (DHS) databases to help verify the identity and employment eligibility of newly hired employees.
