Slavery and human trafficking remain an affliction in global society.
We all have a responsibly to be alert to the risks.
All staff are expected to report concerns and management are expected to act upon them.
AAXAcademy is an independent training provider with a turnover less than £36M and whilst it is not mandatory for us to publish a statement we do so to affirm to our suppliers, who may have a turnover in excess of £36M that we expect our supply chain to act in accordance with the Act and that we will not undertake business with a supply chain partner who fails to comply with the requirements of the Act.
OUR SUPPLY CHAINS
Our supply chains include the sourcing of raw materials principally related to the provision of colour dyes, hair products, cosmetics and nail colouring products.
OUR POLICIES ON SLAVERY AND HUMAN TRAFFICKING
We are committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in our supply chains or in any part of our business.
Our Anti-slavery Policy reflects our commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all of 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
With regards to national or international supply chains, our point of contact is preferably with a UK company or branch and we expect these entities to have suitable anti-slavery and human trafficking policies and processes.
We expect each entity to, at least, adopt ‘one-up’ due diligence on the next link in the chain. It is not practical for us (and every other participant in the chain) to have a direct relationship with all links in the total supply chain.
We have in place systems to encourage the reporting of concerns and the protection of whistle blowers.
SUPPLIER ADHERENCE TO OUR VALUES
We have zero tolerance to slavery and human trafficking.
We expect all those in our supply chain and contractors comply with 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 relevant members of staff.
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:
• Level of communication and personal contact with the next link in the supply chain and their understanding of, and compliance with, our expectations.
