As a leading supplier of new & reconditioned pallet solutions, dealing with businesses across a multitude of industrial and manufacturing sectors, we have a zero-tolerance policy to modern slavery and human trafficking of any kind. We take steps to ensure, with as much certainty as is possible, that numerous areas of our operations aren’t affected by this.
The measures we take to mitigate modern slavery risks are as follows:
- Engage with all parts of our supply chain to ensure they have measures in place within their business for anti-slavery policy
- We reserve the right to end any contractual relationship with a supplier whose business doesn’t meet the standards of our own policy
- We ensure all agency workers used within our own organisation are sourced from reputable, tried and tested agencies, whilst engaging directly with these agencies regarding their forced labour, slavery and human trafficking policies.
- We verify that all our own employees are allowed to work in the country before beginning employment
- All employees are given signed contracts and employee handbooks
- All employees are paid above the minimum statutory pay as outlined by the government
- We have a whistleblowing procedure which allows employees to raise concerns without fear of reprisal
- We offer training to staff to allow them to identify and act upon risks of slavery within our own business and our supply chain and expect our business partners to offer the same
