Fortis Vision makes this Statement in accordance with Section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and details the steps the Company has taken to address the risk of slavery and human trafficking within its operations and supply chain.
The areas of Fortis Vision’s business that could be affected are: –
• Our employees
• Agency workers
• Contractors’ Operatives
• Supply Chain
Fortis Vision is committed to ensuring that there is no Modern slavery or human trafficking in its supply chain or in any part of its business with a zero tolerance to non-compliance. We operate under several policies (including Anti-Bribery and Corruption; Whistleblowing Recruitment and Selection) to ensure the business is conducted to the highest ethical standard.
All of Fortis Vision’s employees are aware of all our policies and procedures prior commencing employment and the procedures for raising concerns. We verify that all workers have the Right to Work in the UK prior to employment.
In relation to Fortis Vision’s Supply chain, we maintain an Approved List of Contractors and Suppliers and conduct due diligence prior to them being added to the Approved List. They are required to confirm that their business operations comply with the Modern Slavery Act and Right to Work in the UK and Fortis Vision may terminate the contract at any time should there be any instances of modern slavery. Since our inception in 2018 we have no spend with suppliers in high risk Countries (such Countries being determined as high risk by the Global Slavery Index).
In 2021 Fortis Vision had no incidents of Modern Slavery reported.
In 2022 we will review our training to ensure there is a good level of understanding of the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking. We will also review and our site pre-enrolment procedures
and include key messages on tackling modern slavery, spotting the signs and what to do if someone sees something that doesn’t look right.
This statement was approved by Fortis Vision’s Managing Director and Operations Director
