As a company in domestic services, we are conscious of the fact that once you cross the threshold into someone's home, trust and peace of mind are imperative. This is why we take every precaution possible to ensure that our cleaners are honest and trustworthy. This includes criminal and reference checks as well as recording constant feedback from our clients.
Our criminal checks are carried out in accordance with the South African gold standard. We even receive data if they have ever been charged with a crime. We would never permit a worker to be activated on our platform with any criminal history.
SweepSouth utilises the AFISwitch Criminal Illicit Activity Check, the only criminal verification check available to the South African corporate market since the discontinuation of the SAPS Name Clearance Criminal Check in mid 2011.
The AFISwitch Criminal Illicit Activity Check requires a candidate's fingerprints in order to conduct the verification against the Automated Fingerprint Identification System. The fingerprints can be obtained by capturing the ten fingerprints of a potential candidate electronically using a SAGEM MSO300 scanner. The fingerprint package is then submitted online for verification to AFISwitch; the interface between the AFIS database and the public.
