UK ECO ELECTROSTATIC LIMITED Anti Slavey Policy
Modern slavery is a heinous crime and a morally reprehensible act that deprives a person’s liberty and dignity for another person’s gain. It is a real problem for millions of people around the world, including many in developed countries, who are being kept and exploited in various forms of slavery. Every company is at risk of being involved in this crime through its own operations and its supply chain. At UK Eco Electrostatic Ltd, we have a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery and are fully committed to preventing slavery and human trafficking in our operation and supply chain. We have taken concrete steps to tackle modern slavery, as outlined in our statement. This statement sets out the actions that we have taken to understand all potential modern slavery risks related to our business and to implement steps to prevent slavery and human trafficking during the financial year 2020.
As a reputable organization, UK Eco Electrostatic Ltd wishes to play a part in stamping this practice out, and, to that end, we have safeguards in place to ensure no person can be employed by us under such circumstances. These safeguards are described below.
All UK UK Eco Electrostatic Ltd employees are required to supply referees, proof of address, bank account verification, and entitlement to work in the UK.
Part of the proof of identity is the production of a current passport/ work permit. This document would normally be withheld by traffickers so its availability at interview would reassure us of the person’s freedom.
All managers and supervisors receive training to ensure that the documentation provided to verify a person’s identification is authentic and not a forgery or stolen identification from a similar-looking individual.
All sub-contractors must be reputable and holders of BS EN ISO 9001 accreditation. We judge that a company with this certification is highly unlikely to behave in a nature that would condone slavery or human trafficking.
The purchase of quality critical supplies and services may only be made through approved suppliers who have been verified and appointed to our Approved Suppliers List.
Part of the verification process includes the completion of a statement to the effect that the supplier has robust employment measures in place and only sources their materials from known parties.
