Civil Engineering at its best
This policy applies to all persons working for us or on our 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.
Based in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire Bridgebank Ltd is a civil engineering and ground works contractor carrying out projects in and around the Midlands for clients in the housing and industrial sectors.
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 in order to exploit them for personal or commercial gain.
Bridgebank Ltd have a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery. We 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 supplier chains.
We are committed to ensuring there is transparency in our own business and in our approach to tackling modern slavery through our supply chains. We expect the same high standards from all of our contractors, suppliers, and other business partners.
We have long-term relationships with most of our suppliers. Where new suppliers or contractors are appointed, we have a pre-qualification process which includes that company's commitment to preventing slavery and human trafficking.
Our workforce and those of any supplier or contractor are encouraged to report any concerns about any issue or suspicion of modern slavery or human trafficking in any part of our business or supply chain at the earliest possible stage.
Our workers and those of any supplier or contractor, are encouraged to report any concerns to us if they suspect any slavery or human trafficking activities. Anyone reporting such concerns, as long as their intent is genuine, whether subsequently proven or unfounded, will not be put at a disadvantage for doing so.
Communication and Awareness
Training on this policy and on the risk our business faces from modern slavery in its supply chains forms part of the induction process for all individuals who work for us.
Our zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery is communicated to all suppliers, contractors, and business partners at the outset of our business relationship with them and is reinforced as necessary thereafter.
Any employee who breaches this policy will face disciplinary action, which could result in dismissal for misconduct or gross misconduct.
We may terminate our relationship with other individuals and organisations working on our behalf if they breach this policy.
The Managing Director has ultimate responsibility for our anti-slavery initiatives.
