Modern Slavery Act

Anti-slavery and Human Trafficking Policy

Policy Statement

Modern slavery is a crime and a violation of fundamental human rights. It takes various forms, such as slavery, servitude, forced and compulsory labour and human trafficking, all of which have in common the deprivation of a person's liberty by another to exploit them for personal or commercial gain. Accordingly, Standby RSG UK Limited have a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery and are committed to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business dealings and relationships and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure modern slavery is not taking place anywhere in our own business or in any of our supply chains.

Standby RSG is also committed to ensuring there is transparency in its business and in its approach to tackling modern slavery throughout our supply chains, consistent with its disclosure obligations under the Modern Slavery Act 2015. Standby RSG expects the same high standards from all its contractors, suppliers and other business partners, and as part of our contracting processes, we include specific prohibitions against the use of forced, compulsory or trafficked labour, or anyone held in slavery or servitude, whether adults or children, and it expects that our suppliers will hold their own suppliers to the same high standards.

This policy applies to all persons working for Standby RSG or on its behalf in any capacity, including employees at all levels, directors, officers, agency workers, seconded workers, volunteers, interns, agents, contractors, external consultants, third-party representatives and business partners.

This policy does not form part of any employee's contract of employment and Standby RSG may amend it at any time.

Responsibility for the Policy

The Standby RSG UK Limited Board of Directors has overall responsibility for ensuring this policy complies with its legal and ethical obligations, and that all those under our control comply with it.

Standby RSG’s Quality Assurance (QA) function has primary and day-to-day responsibility for implementing this policy, monitoring its use and effectiveness, dealing with any queries about it, and auditing internal control systems and procedures to ensure they are effective in countering modern slavery.

Management at all levels are responsible for ensuring those reporting to them understand and comply with this policy and are given adequate and regular training on it and the issue of modern slavery in supply chains.

Readers are invited to comment on this policy and suggest ways in which it might be improved. Comments, suggestions and queries are encouraged and should be addressed to the General Legal Counsel.

Compliance with the Policy

All recipients must ensure that they read, understand and comply with this policy.

The prevention, detection and reporting of modern slavery in any part of Standby RSG’s business or supply chains is the responsibility of all those working for it or under its control. You are required to avoid any activity that might lead to, or suggest, a breach of this policy.

You must notify Standby RSG’s QA function as soon as possible if you believe or suspect that a conflict with this policy has occurred or may occur in the future.

You should note that where appropriate, and with the welfare and safety of local workers as a priority, we will give support and guidance to our suppliers to help them address coercive, abusive and exploitative work practices in their own business and supply chains.

If you are unsure about whether a particular act, the treatment of workers more generally, or their working conditions within any tier of our supply chains constitutes any of the various forms of modern slavery, raise it with Standby RSG’s QA function. Standby Standby RSG aims to encourage openness and will support anyone who raises genuine concerns in good faith under this policy, even if they turn out to be mistaken. Standby RSG is committed to ensuring no one suffers any detrimental treatment as a result of reporting in good faith their suspicion that modern slavery of whatever form is or may be taking place in any part of its business or in any of its supply chains. Detrimental treatment includes dismissal, disciplinary action, threats or other unfavourable treatment connected with raising a concern. If you believe that you have suffered any such treatment, you should inform Standby RSG’s QA function immediately.
