While most of us believe slavery to be a thing of the past, there are currently around 50 million people entangled in modern slavery throughout the world. This is not only a crime in the UK and much of the world, but also a violation of fundamental human rights.
Modern slavery may not be a familiar concept to many, but it can be defined as the exploitation of individuals or groups by others, either for personal or commercial gain. This includes atrocities such as forced labour and human trafficking, though there are hundreds of variations that filter down into everyday society. Many victims can never escape this situation, faced with the threat of deportation, inescapable debt, or violence.
Fire Protection Ltd has a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery and human trafficking, and we are committed to acting ethically and with integrity in all our activities and business relationships. As such, we expect our supply chain, contractors, employees and all other business partners to show the same commitment, by implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to prevent and detect modern slavery.
Our company operates with complete transparency in our supplychain, working to ensure that:
- Modern slavery is not present in their company
- Suppliers evaluate risk within their own supply chain
- Safe and fair working conditions are provided
- Compliance is reflected in their policies, procedures and practices
Fire Protection Ltd believes that all individuals have the right to work under fair conditions, without exploitation, and we do what we can to ensure that all those who work for us and with us are protected from modern slavery in all its various forms.
In compliance with The Modern Slavery Act 2015, our company prepares a slavery and human trafficking statement each financial year.
