Background Checks To Ensure Reliability Status For Construction Staffing Needs

July 14, 2021

Some of your most turnkey industrial and commercial construction projects require workers to obtain the coveted reliability status. Conferred by the Canadian government, this security clearance allows the worker to access protected information and important work sites. 

Some companies try to obtain reliability status for their workers by their own means, but they often struggle during the first step of the application process: the background check. To maximize the chances of conferment of reliability status, you should consider enlisting a reputable staffing agency that has extensive experience conducting thorough background checks. A staffing agency expedites the application process as well, freeing up your time and resources.

What A Background Check Looks Like 

A comprehensive background check is the first step of the reliability status application process. A satisfactory verification sets the tone for the remaining steps. As such, one can argue that it is the most important step. 

Companies seeking to obtain reliability status for their workers should endeavour to get the background check right. Whether they take up this responsibility themselves or recruit a staffing solutions agency to do it, they need to ensure that the verification process contains at the very least these checks:

In addition to providing a thorough background check, the applicant should also be cognizant of the numerous federal laws and regulations surrounding the proper handling of personal information. As such, it is recommended to entrust the background check to staffing agencies familiar with privacy and document protection laws.  

A Head Start For Your Workers’ Reliability Status 

Performing the background check as part of the reliability status application can be convoluted if you do not have readily tappable resources and years of experience dealing with the paperwork. Construction firms that attempt to navigate the application process on their own frequently encounter obstacles and, as a result, delay their construction projects. 

Partnering with a proven staffing agency like Matrix Labour Leasing Inc. is often the better idea when it comes to obtaining reliability certification for your workers. Our process is streamlined and effective, granting your workers the right to work on keystone industrial and commercial projects as quickly as 3 months.
