Employees and Training

  • As part of the company’s commitment to identifying and eradicating modern slavery and human trafficking, we have in place a system to encourage the reporting of any concerns and the protection of whistle blowers.
  • Training is to be provided where necessary to ensure that sufficient levels of risk awareness are in place in terms of identifying modern slavery and human trafficking.
