ZED SECURITY AND GUARDING
Anti-Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement
As an organisation that supports its customers in becoming safer, healthier and stronger, we are taking steps to combat slavery and human trafficking and are committed to meeting our obligations under the Modern Slavery Act 2015. This statement applies to all companies within our group of companies. We take a zero-tolerance approach to non-ethical practices, and are committed to acting professionally, fairly and with integrity in all our business dealings and supply chain relationships, wherever we operate, implementing and enforcing effective systems to uphold ethical standards and to combat modern slavery and human trafficking.
We are committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery, human trafficking or forced labour in our supply chains or in any part of our business. As part of this commitment, we have the following policies:
Modern Slavery Policy;
Code of Conduct Policy;
Anti-Bribery and Corruption Policy.
These policies reflect 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. We are working to put in place processes that will ensure that our suppliers are aware of our key policies and encourage them to adhere to the same high standards.
Due Diligence and Training
We are formalising our procedures to establish, assess and monitor areas of potential risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring in our businesses and their respective supply chains. This will include measures as appropriate to reduce this risk and provide adequate protection for whistle-blowers.
To ensure a high level of understanding of the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our supply chains and our business, we are currently putting in place processes to educate our staff to recognise the risks of modern slavery in our business and supply chains. We also contractually require our business partners and suppliers to provide training to their staff, suppliers and providers.
This statement has been approved by ZED Security Guarding Board of Directors and is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
