DBS checks for people working in a childminding premises / PVI

Please be aware that if someone regularly works in your setting during your working day or part of your working day such as a cleaner or gardener, they MUST have a DBS in place.

If the cleaner only works outside of your working hours i.e early morning/evening, then the DBS would not be required.

If maintenance work is required on an irregular basis i.e an annual gas boiler service, then you would only be required to carry out a risk assessment, and a DBS would not be required.
