Galldris’s Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement and Policy.
This statement of compliance with Section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015, sets out the actions that Galldris Construction has taken to ensure that modern slavery and human trafficking is not occurring in our organisation or in our supply chains.
Galldris’s organisational structure, business, and supply chains.
Galldris Construction is a leading civil engineering and groundworks company operating in London and the south east construction sector. Its brand image and reputation for a quality product, with observance of environmental and energy considerations, links with its proven record of social responsibility and ethical trading.
Galldris is a privately-owned company and its business activities are primarily undertaken in the United Kingdom. It is appreciated that, whilst the company does not operate outside the UK, its major suppliers do and can source materials and/or manufacture products in a variety of countries round the globe.
Galldris’s Supply Chain include the following:
- Sourcing of labouring through subcontractors;
- Suppliers of goods, services, and materials.
Responsibilities under the Act.
The Board of Directors and senior managers are aware of the problems of slavery and human trafficking and the cost in human misery and lives and are thus committed to ensuring that that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in our supply chain or in any part of our business.
The organisation understands that this requires an ongoing review of both its internal practices in relation to its labour force and, additionally its supply chains.
It is the responsibility of all our personnel, though particularly those within the Procurement and Commercial Departments where supply chain facing and vetting responsibilities are held, to maintain Galldris’s duties in respect of the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
To ensure that no slavery or human trafficking is taking place within the Galldris Supply chain, Galldris Construction shall:
- Ensure that all its employees are legally employed and are paid at least the minimum wage and have the right to work;
- Ensure that our Sub- contractors are similarly compliant with their staffing;
- Include pre-contract checks with all new suppliers and sub- contractors to ensure compliance with this policy;
- Use our Suppliers/Sub Contractors Pre-Qualification Questionnaire to establish compliance in human resourcing;
- Conduct regular audits of existing suppliers and subcontractors;
- Use our Procurement Team to strengthen supplier engagement and maintain effective links with them, to ensure compliance with the UK Modern Slavery Act 2015 and any relevant Industry and International Standards;
- Publish the Policy on Galldris’s website for public assess.
All key personnel within Galldris Construction have been trained to a high level of understanding of the risks of modern slavery in our supply chain and business. All Galldris Directors have been briefed on the subject.
The modern slavery policy has been communicated for all staff to read, and new staff are introduced to this policy as part of their induction.
This policy takes into account, and supports Galldris’s recruitment, procurement, grievance and whistle blowing policies.
The Galldris Board of Directors have approved this statement policy.
Date of Approval: September 2017
Mr Sean O’Driscoll
Galldris’s Managing Director.
