MODERN SLAVERY ACT STATEMENT
The UK Modern Slavery Act 2015 requires businesses to state the actions they have taken during the financial year to ensure modern slavery is not taking place in their operations and supply chains.
We are fully committed to playing our part in eradicating modern slavery.
We firmly advocate for transparency and collaboration to eliminate the risks of modern slavery. We have a zero-tolerance approach to forced labour, slavery and human trafficking in any form, in any part of our business or supply chain.
This statement covers the business activities of Ferndown Commercials Ltd which are as follows:
Selling, repairing and maintaining all types of commercial vehicles.
The company undertakes due diligence when considering taking on new suppliers, and regular reviews its existing suppliers. The company’s due diligence process includes building long-standing relationships with suppliers and making clear our expectations of business partners and evaluating the modern slavery and human trafficking risks of each new supplier and invoking sanctions against suppliers that fail to improve their performance in line with an action plan provided by us, including the termination of the business relationship. In addition to this, the company ensures that all UK workers are in receipt of the minimum wage and robust immigration checks are in place.
To ensure a good understanding of the risks of modern slavery & human trafficking in our business and supply chains, the company communicates the policy and highlights how to recognise risks of slavery & human trafficking, which is also included at the induction stage to the company.
