Pre employment screening and KYE (know your employee) is big business these days. As mentioned big companies will engage firms to do amongst other things police checks.

Was it that long ago you could have a few beers in any Darwin pub on a Friday night, and start a new job on the Monday morning...... ( sigh )

It can still happen. I have only had a police check done 3 times in my life (mid 40s). First one was joining the Army in the 90s, second one was contracting to the AFP, third one was as a consultant and they needed me to submit a police clearance as part of the proposal for an engagement. However I do have a security clearance that does get checked when I swap between contracts.

All jobs in the disability and child care sectors have mandatory police checks.
And Working With Children checks in NSW.

Disabled Wintersport required checks for all volunteers starting early last year
I haven’t used mine yet because everything was called off
as I recall there was an additional requirement for Victorian volunteers

I even had to do a WWCC to volunteer at the Hunter Wetlands. I never see children without a parent or other adult being present. Apparently they lease a building to the Department of Education as classrooms which makes the entire 45 hectare site an educational precinct.
And remember this lot keep banging on about small govt.
