Our Processes for Managing Risk
In order to assess the risk of modern slavery, we use the following processes:
- Identify and assess potential risk areas when considering taking on new suppliers and
regularly review our existing supply chains
- If an area is identified as higher risk the appropriate additional checks will be carried out
to mitigate the risks.
- Review the potential for risk at regular intervals, including the possibility of re-auditing a supplier or conducting spot checks.
- Protect whistleblowers.
- The risk are reviewed regularly and any changes to procedure will be advised to all individuals
with responsibilities in the risk areas.
