DUE DILIGENCE PROCESSES FOR SLAVERY AND HUMAN TRAFFICKING
Dornan maintains a preferred subcontractor/supplier list. To ensure all those in our supply chain and subcontractors comply with our values we conduct due diligence on all subcontractors and suppliers before allowing them to become a preferred supplier.
Our Anti-Slavery Policy forms part of our contract with all subcontractors/suppliers and they are required to confirm that no part of their business operations contradicts this policy.
We are committed as a Company to tackling modern slavery and human trafficking and want to work with suppliers who share our values.
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. This includes:
- raising awareness at our site inductions
- toolbox talks during the year
- modern slavery e-learning course available on our LMS system
- a dedicated page on our intranet
We also require our business partners to provide training to their staff and suppliers and providers.
