It is a priority for the Emplas Group to ensure that we trade ethically, source responsibly and work to prevent modern slavery and human trafficking throughout our organisation and in our supply chain. We take any allegation of human rights abuse in all its forms seriously and will not tolerate human rights abuse against
individuals within the Emplas Group or our supply chain. The organisation deals with many supply chains that include but are not limited to service contractors, product suppliers, customers, maintenance contractors and employees.
The Company acknowledges responsibility to the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and will ensure transparency within the organisation and with suppliers of goods and services to the organisation. These as well as the suppliers of services make up the supply chain within the Emplas Group. As part of the company’s due diligence processes into slavery and human trafficking the supplier approval process will incorporate a review of the controls undertaken by the supplier. Internal reviews will also take place and relevant checks and controls will be monitored throughout areas such as, but not limited to recruitment, references, training on how to spot concerns, where and how to report them and record keeping. Through these checks and controls the company is committed to ensuring that human trafficking will not take place, nor will it deal, trade, employ or partner with any risk of this nature.
Imported goods from sources from outside the UK and EU are potentially more at risk for slavery/human trafficking issues. The level of management control required for these sources will be continually monitored. The company will not support or deal with any business knowingly involved in slavery or human trafficking.
The company Directors and Senior Management shall take responsibility for implementing this policy statement and its objectives and shall provide adequate resources and investment to ensure that slavery and human trafficking is not taking place within the organisation and within its supply chains.
A full copy of this policy and a copy of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 will be accessible to all employees electronically and can be obtained from the HR department upon request. This policy statement will be reviewed annually and published. Keys points within the statement include our commitment to transparency in working practice, who is responsible for the policy and its content, compliance expectations, training and awareness commitments and how the company will respond to any breach of this policy. All employees attending inductions courses and regularly throughout employment will be informed of the policy, this statement and the company’s zero tolerance position on this matter.
Formal procedures concerning slavery and human trafficking have been established, including disciplinary procedures where they are breached. Additional on boarding and existing communications procedures ensure that this policy is understood and communicated to all levels of the company, and that it is regularly reviewed by the Directors and or Senior Management to ensure its continuing suitability and relevance to the company activities.
