These policies are reviewed annually and updated to ensure that ongoing opportunities for improvement are identified and acted upon. These policies include:
We carry out pre-employment checks on all employees joining our organisation and this includes the employee being able to provide evidence that they are in possession of their own identification documents and that the bank account details provided belong to the employee and not a third party. Any discrepancies identified are investigated thoroughly and appropriate action taken.

To ensure a high level of understanding of the risks of slavery and human trafficking in our supply chains and our business, we provide awareness training to our staff. We engage with HMRC and utilise their on-line resource training pages. They also provide online seminars periodically that our Directors, Senior Manager, HR department and payroll department regularly engage in.
