Modern Day Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement
We, the Directors of Beechwood, understand that we have a moral and legal obligation to ensure our supply chain is slavery free. We are committed to managing our business in a socially responsible way and to preventing slavery and human trafficking in our business activities. Due to the nature of our business, we assess that there is very low risk of slavery and human trafficking in our activities and supply chains. However, we periodically review the effectiveness of the relevant policies and procedures that we have in place. These include:
- As part of our ISO certified management system we have implemented a supplier review process that includes identifying any suppliers that might pose exposure to modern slavery
- Where risk of exposure to modern slavery is identified we will undertake additional checks and may undertake a site audit of the supplier.
- All our workers receive above minimum wage
- We undertake robust right to work checks on all workers
Staff are made aware of the government website: https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/modern-slavery. The information provided allows our staff to understand the nature of the problem and to highlight potential issues should there be a suspicion that one of our suppliers may be breaking the law.
