Supply Chain Risk

Our Recruitment process ensures that checks are made on the eligibility of all workers for UK employment.
Our process for Managing Risk
In order to assess the risk of modern slavery, we use the following processes:
• Identify and access potential risk areas when considering taking on new suppliers and regularly review our existing supply chains
• Review the potential for risk at regular intervals, including the possibility of re-auditing a supplier or conducting spot checks
• Protect whistle blowers.
To maintain awareness and ensure a high level of understanding of the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking
in our business our Modern Slavery Policy is held on our Intranet alongside all our other company policies.
