ASLRRA offers new employment screening option
The American Short Line and Regional Railroad Association (ASLRRA) has selected eVerifile as a preferred provider in the association's member discount program, and introduced eShortLine, eVerifile's contractor and screening and workplace security management program for short lines.
eVerifile, which created eRailSafe for Class Is, designed eShortLine as comprehensive contractor screening solution designed to meet the unique needs of short lines, ASLRRA officials said in a press release.
Like eRailSafe, eShortLine offers nationwide multi-county criminal search, national criminal database reports, nationwide federal search, grading and specific short-line training and testing. Services by eVerifile also include drug testing and the issuance of identification badges.
"eShortLine combines security, convenience, and trusted expertise to reduce supplier and employee risk for short-line railroads," said ASLRRA President Linda Bauer Darr. "ASLRRA is pleased to present this uniquely tailored program, which will ease the burden — and cost — of screening and onboarding third party contractors for our members."
