This D.K. Engineering (Holding) Limited, Policy is approved by the Board: it represents the DK’s Board’s direction to the business on this topic. Compliance with this policy is mandatory through D.K. Engineering (Holdings) Limited Management System processes and people behaviours to the commitments below.
This policy applies to all persons working for us or on our behalf in any capacity, including employees at all levels, directors, officers, agency workers, seconded workers, volunteers, agents, contractors and suppliers. D.K. Engineering (Holdings) Limited strictly prohibits the use of modern slavery and human trafficking in our operations and supply chain. We have and will continue to be committed to implementing systems and controls aimed at ensuring that modern slavery is not taking place anywhere within our organisation or in any of our supply chains. We expect that our suppliers will hold their own suppliers to the same high standards.
Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking:
Modern Slavery is a term used to encompass slavery, servitude, forced and compulsory labour, bonded and child labour and human trafficking. Human Trafficking is where a person arranges or facilitates the travel of another person with a view to that person being exploited. Modern slavery is a crime and violation of fundamental human rights.
We shall be a company that expects everyone working with us or on our behalf to support and uphold the following measures to safeguard against modern slavery:
We take a risk based approach to our contracting processes and keep them under review. We assess whether the circumstances warrant the inclusion of specific prohibitions against the use of modern slavery and trafficked labour in our contacts with third parties. Using our risked based approach we will also assess the merits of writing to suppliers requiring them to comply with our Code of Conduct, which sets out the minimum standards required to combat modern slavery and trafficking.
Consistent with our risk-based approach we may require:
Issued By Head Office Document Control. When printed, uncontrolled copies must be disposed of after use, unless required as a formal record. Controlled copies must be returned to the controlled copy file.
