  • McFadyens Contractors (Campbeltown) Ltd is committed to driving out acts of modern day slavery and human trafficking within its business and that from within its supply chains, including sub-contractors, and partners. The Company recognises the essential element and is committed to paying a fair market price for goods/services received in combat of modern day slavery, child labour and trafficking.

    The Company acknowledges responsibility to the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and will ensure transparency within the organisation and with suppliers of goods and services to the organisation. These as well as the suppliers of services make up the supply chain within the Company.

     

    As part of the companies due diligence processes into slavery and human trafficking the supplier approval process will incorporate a review of the controls undertaken by the supplier. Imported goods from sources from outside the UK and EU are potentially more at risk for slavery/human trafficking issues. The level of management control required for these sources will be continually monitored. The company will not support or deal with any business knowingly involved in slavery or human trafficking. The company Directors and senior management shall take responsibility for implementing this policy statement and its objectives and shall provide adequate resources (training, etc ) and investment to ensure that child labour, slavery and human trafficking is not taking place within the organisation and within its supply chains.

    A full copy of this policy and a copy of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 will be accessible to all employees electronically and can be obtained from the HR department upon request.

    This policy statement will be reviewed annually and published.

     

    This Policy takes into account, and supports, the policies, procedures and requirements documented in our Integrated Management System, compliant with the requirements of ISO 9001:2015, ISO 14001:2015 and OHSAS 18001.

     

    The implementation and operation of this management system underlines our commitment to this policy. Formal procedures concerning slavery and human trafficking have been established, including disciplinary procedures where they are breached, or in serious cases matters will be referred to the police. Additional procedures ensure that this policy is understood and communicated to all levels of the company, and that it is regularly reviewed by the Directors to ensure its continuing suitability and relevance to the company activities.

     

    At McFadyens Contractors safety is our overriding priority and we regard the co-operation of our supply chain throughout the tiers as essential to maintain the highest standards for all the goods we supply.

    We understand the potential risks concerning the supply of Counterfeit, Fraudulent and Suspect Items (CFSI) within the supply chain, and to this end we only choose suppliers that can demonstrate the quality and source of the goods that we require.

     

    All our employees involved in the purchasing of goods have been informed about the potential for CFSI and advised that all goods must be purchased directly from the manufacturers or from agreed and official distribution channels.
