Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement
This statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking act 2015 which constitutes the company’s slavery and human trafficking statement for the current financial year.
As a group Masterson Holdings maintains relationships with many different organisations in its supply chain, as well as employing and engaging large numbers of people. In light of the modern slavery act 2015, we have reviewed our existing compliance and risk management processes to determine what measures already exist, and what further measures may be required to prevent slavery and human trafficking taking place in any part of our businesses or in our supply chain
All staff have an obligation to familiarise themselves with our procedures to help in the identification and prevention of modern slavery and to conduct business in a manner such that the opportunity for an incidence of modern slavery is prevented.
To make sure human trafficking is not taking place in our supply chains, we have implement the following:
- conduct risk assessments to determine which part of our business are most at risk of modern slavery.
- engage with suppliers to convey our anti-slavery statement and gain understanding of the measures taken by them to ensure modern slavery is not occurring in their business.
- where appropriate introduce supplier pre-screening
- introduce contractual provisions for our suppliers to confirm their adherence to the modern slavery act.
We continue to invest in training and ensure members of staff have a high level of understanding of the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking.
Managers at all levels are responsible for ensuring those reporting to them understand and comply with the anti-slavery and human trafficking act 2015.
We are committed to ensuring there is transparency in our business and in our approach to tackling modern slavery throughout our supply chain. We expect the same high standards from all our suppliers and other business partners.
