Introduction from the Managing Director
It continues to be a priority for 4 Site Security Services Limited to ensure that we trade ethically, source responsibly and work to prevent modern slavery and human trafficking throughout our organisation and in our supply chain.
We are a provider of manned security, alarm and mobile response, and CCTV monitoring services. The Company’s head office is in Leeds, United Kingdom and we limit the provision of our services to within the UK.
Our policies on slavery and human trafficking
We have appropriate policies in place that underpin our commitment to ensure that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in our supply chains or in any part of our business. We continuously review and update all our policies.
Our Anti-slavery Policy reflects our commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure slavery and human trafficking is not taking place anywhere in our supply chains.
Due diligence processes for slavery and human trafficking
As part of our initiative to identify and mitigate risk we limit the geographical scope of the provision of our services to within the UK in order to ensure the optimum supervision on our assignments.
In addition, we complete the following audits and inspections on our labour monitoring and payroll systems;
- Quarterly audits by the Operations and MRQE Director;
- Monthly inspections carried out by management and/or supervisory personnel.
Supplier adherence to our values
We have zero tolerance to slavery and human trafficking. To ensure all those in our supply chain and contractors comply with our values we have in place a supply chain compliance programme. This consists of building longstanding relationships with local suppliers and making our expectations of business behaviour clear. With regards to our nation or international supply chains, our point of contact is with a UK based company or branch where possible, and we expect these entities to adopt a suitable anti-slavery and human trafficking policy. We expect each supplier within the chain to adopt a ‘one up’ due diligence process on the next link in the chain, particularly with those which we do not have a direct link or relationship with.
To ensure a high level of understanding of the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our supply chains and our business, we provide training to our staff. We also require our business partners to provide training to their staff and suppliers and providers.
Our effectiveness in combating slavery and human trafficking
We use the following key performance indicators (KPIs) to measure how effective we have been to ensure that slavery and human trafficking is not taking place in any part of our business or supply chains:
- Acknowledgement of receipt of any concerns relating to slavery and human trafficking within 48 hours of receipt by a member of the HR Department;
- Completion of an initial investigation within 7 days of receipt of the initial complaint;
- Report to the relevant government authorities or regulatory bodies within 48 hours of the conclusion of any investigation to an allegation found to be proven.
This statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes our group's slavery and human trafficking statement for the current financial year
