Adopting a solid screening and selection process is your first line of defense in creating a safe environment. A thorough, consistent screening process may also discourage would-be offenders from targeting your organization. Failure to discover a known offender can affect those in your care and your reputation, financial stability, and trust within the community. In determining the types of checks to utilize, you should follow all state, federal, and licensing regulations and consider an individual’s level of access. Praesidium offers several standard and customizable criminal background check packages plus other a la carte background check services. Praesidium offers a selection of background screening packages plus a la carte services to empower your organization to conduct right-sized research. Praesidium’s team can help contextualize the screening process as part of an overall culture of safety and discuss how screening works in hand with other abuse prevention efforts. Praesidium’s team can also help you understand who to screen, how often, and the importance of re-screening.
Background Screening is available to all, however, Insurance Board will provide a 50% subsidy to program participants (policy holders).

Praesidium uses a systems-based approach created from the scientific research of thousands of reported incidents of abuse.

We help our clients implement best practice standards in each of the eight operations to close gaps, decrease risks, and creates safer environments within their organizations.
