We are delighted to publish our annual Modern Slavery & Human Trafficking Policy statement. This statement is published in line with the reporting requirements of section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
SafeLane Global is committed to the principles of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and the abolition of modern slavery and human trafficking. As an equal opportunities employer, we're committed to creating and ensuring a non-discriminatory and respectful working environment for our staff.
We want all our staff to feel confident that they can expose wrongdoing without any risk to themselves. Our recruitment and people management processes are designed to ensure that all prospective employees are legally entitled to work in the UK and to safeguard employees from any abuse or coercion.
Employees working abroad are also required to meet similar requirements extant in the countries in which they work. SafeLane carries out due diligence processes in relation to ensuring slavery and/or human trafficking does not take place in its organisation or supply chains, including conducting a review of the controls of its suppliers.
It has not, to its knowledge, conducted any business with another organisation which has been found to have involved itself with modern slavery.
In accordance with section 54(4) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015, SafeLane has taken the following steps to ensure that modern slavery is not taking place:
- providing awareness training to staff on the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and informing them of the appropriate action to take if they suspect a case of slavery or human trafficking
- ensuring that staff involved in buying, procurement or recruiting receive training on modern slavery and ethical employment practices
- ensuring that staff involved in the recruitment and deployment of workers receive training on modern slavery and ethical employment practices
- continuing to take action to embed a zero tolerance policy towards modern slavery
- review of supplier contracts to include termination powers in the event that the supplier is, or is suspected, to be involved in modern slavery
