In compliance with section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015, Gower Plant Hire Limited (referred to as GPH hence forward) is not required to produce an annual report as GPH is not a commercial organisation with a turnover more than £36 million. However, despite this exemption from providing an annual report GPH has still adopted a policy to ensure that modern slavery or human trafficking is not taking place within our business or supply chain.
GPH has a zero-tolerance approach to any form of modern slavery. We are committed to acting ethically and with integrity and transparency in all business dealings and to putting effective systems and controls in place to safeguard against any form of modern slavery taking place within the business or our supply chain.
Definition & Scope:
- Modern slavery encompasses slavery, servitude, human trafficking and forced labour.
- The scope of this policy will apply to all company operations as described under the definition above and within the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
Responsibilities & Arrangements:
Duties of Employees, Managers and Supervisors
Company employees should also raise their concerns under this policy if It is the duties of employees to notify management if there is any indication that modern slavery practices have been identified.
Company employees should also raise their concerns under this policy if it is reasonably believed that there is an indication that modern slavery practices have been identified. This Policy will apply where malpractice is suspected concerning:
- Gower Plant Hire Limited, a GPH employee or a GPH customer
Should a GPH employee experience a concern that slavery is taking place, they should raise the matter in the first instance with a Supervisor/Line Manager who may be able to resolve the matter informally and locally. Where there may be a conflict of interest, such that an employee cannot raise an issue with their line manager, the issue should be raised with a more senior manager. Alternatively, you may contact the Head Office for further guidance as it is vitally important that GPH has the opportunity to resolve such instances within the Company with the utmost speed and efficiency and to ensure complete compliance with the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
GPH therefore seeks to ensure that our Anti-Slavery Policy is understood and applied throughout the Company through effective internal and external communication channels and including appropriate training for our staff with due monitoring and review of the Policy undertaken at regular intervals to incorporate any amendments or make improvements where necessary.
