Worcestershire County Council Driver and Passenger Assistant ID badges
For Transport Operators and Community Transport
All staff working on Worcestershire County Council (WCC) transport contracts involving Regulated Activities must have a current DBS Enhanced Disclosure; a new DBS check must be undertaken every 3 years to obtain a new disclosure (unless subscribing to the GOV.UK - DBS Update Service). WCC will issue an ID badge with an expiry date and the operator's name to show the holder is compliant. WCC does not accept ID badges issued by other authorities such as a taxi badge as meeting this requirement.
The disclosure must include a check of both the Children’s Barred List and Adults’ Barred List.
The applicant must declare if they are involved in any police investigations or if they have committed any criminal offences since any listed in their current disclosure including all unspent and unfiltered (see GOV.UK - Filtering rules for DBS certificates) convictions, cautions, reprimands and warnings. If the applicant answers Yes to either of these questions, a new DBS check is required.
