Anti-Slavery and Human Trafficking Policy
ENCO Ltd is a family owned metal fabrication company. Here at ENCO recognise that the execution of our services involves labour being procured throughout our business and supply chains and understand that this entails the risk that modern slavery may take place. Modern Slavery is a crime and a violation of fundamental human rights. It takes various forms, such as slavery, servitude, forced and compulsory labour and human trafficking, all of which have in common the deprivation of a person’s liberty by another in order to exploit them for personal or commercial gain. We have a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery and we are committed to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business dealings and relationships to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure modern slavery is not taking place anywhere in our own business or in any of our supply chains.
Our approach to ensuring that slavery does not take place within our business is driven by the following;
- We are committed to ensuring there is transparency in our own business and in our approach to tackling modern slavery throughout our supply chains, consistent with our disclosure obligations under the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
- We will ensure that ENCO Ltd and our supply chains have effective systems and controls in place to ensure that slavery does not take place.
- ENCO Ltd employees and supply chain will work together in alignment with our internal process to ensure compliance with the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
- We are committed to implementing systems to ensure that there is a zero-tolerance towards any acts of modern slavery within our business and supply chains.
Here at ENCO we believe that modern slavery violates fundamental human rights and we are committed to play our part to ensure it doesn’t take place.
Our ENCO Ltd employees are collectively responsible for the communication, understanding and practical application of this policy. The policy will be made available to all new employees, during their induction, to our supply chain and to any other third parties upon request.
Our employees also have a responsibility to report any actual or suspected instance of modern slavery throughout the business or supply chain. Breaches of this policy will be dealt under the ENCO Ltd disciplinary procedures and could lead to dismissal in appropriate circumstances.
The managing director has overall responsibility for ensuring the policy is complied with and will review it at least once a year and at such other times as it may be required, to ensure it remains relevant and appropriate to the aims and objectives of our business.
