Workwear101 Modern Slavery Statement
Our policies on Slavery and Human Trafficking
At Workwear101.com Ltd. Our anti-slavery policy reflects our commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships, protecting lives and ensuring that slavery and human trafficking is not taking place anywhere in our business. We also expect all those in our supply chain to comply with this approach.
We use tried and tested supply lines who reflect the company's exacting standards and demonstrate conformity to their compliance to the Modern Slavery Act 2015
Before entering into agreements with any manufacturers and suppliers, we supply them with a compliance form designed to address areas of potential risk within those supply chains. This ensures that suppliers have their own clearly defined Ethical Working Practises including suitable anti‐slavery and human trafficking policies and similar processes within their businesses. We require such confirmation that they comply with all requirements as declared in the Modern Slavery Act 2015 prior to all business transactions.
Workwear101 operates a supplier policy and maintains a preferred supplier list. We will conduct due diligence on all suppliers before allowing them to become a preferred supplier. This due diligence includes an online search to ensure that particular organisation has never been convicted of offences relating to modern slavery and on site audits which include a review of working conditions.
In addition to the above, as part of our contract with suppliers, we require that they confirm to us that:
- They have taken steps to eradicate modern slavery within their business
- They hold their own suppliers to account over modern slavery
- UK based suppliers They pay their employees at least the national minimum wage /
- national living wage (as appropriate)
- (For international suppliers) They pay their employees any prevailing minimum wage applicable
- within their country of operations
- We may terminate the contract at any time should any instances of modern slavery come to
We sincerely recognise that a risk-based approach is necessary in seeking to ensure that there is no slavery or human trafficking in our business or our supply chain.
To ensure an in-depth grasp of the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our supply chains and our business, our staff are instructed to remain vigilant against such activities, and we encourage them to identify and report any potential concerns. It is our policy to expose any instances of non compliance on a case by case basis and to tailor any remedial action properly, and in a timely fashion.
