MODERN SLAVERY & HUMAN TRAFFICKING STATEMENT
Introduction from N R Taylor
Modern slavery is a crime and a violation of fundamental human rights. It takes various forms, such as slavery, servitude, forced and compulsory labour and human trafficking, all of which have in common the deprivation of a person’s liberty by another in order to exploit them for personal or commercial gain.
We are committed to ensuring best practices to combat slavery and human trafficking.
This statement is made in accordance with section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes N R Taylor’s slavery and human trafficking statement for the financial year ending March 2019
Our Supply chains
Our supply chain includes professional services providers, raw material distributors, engineering and electrical suppliers, energy and haulage supplier. We recognise that risks of labour abuse could occur in second and third tier supplies in certain industries and we will begin to undertake risk analysis to understand how this concerns our suppliers
Our policies on slavery and human trafficking
We are committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in our supply chains or in any part of our business.
Our Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking Policy demonstrates our commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure slavery and human trafficking is not taking place anywhere in our supply chains.
Due diligence processes for slavery and human trafficking
We have in place processes to protect whistle blowers. We will continuously asses our supply chain and where we believe or have a concern with a supplier, we will seek assurances about their own awareness of and compliance with the Modern Slavery Act 2015 by requesting them to complete a questionnaire
If we find a supplier is non-compliant with our polices or provides inadequate information, we will work with them to improve their performance. In cases of material or persistent non-compliance, we may consider terminating our business relationship as soon as possible.
To ensure a high level of understanding of the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our supply chains and our business, we intend to provide training to our staff. We will also require our business partners to provide training to their staff and suppliers and providers.
