JAGER Electrical Contractors LTD Modern Slavery Act 2018 Statement

Introduction :

On March 26, 2015, The Modern Slavery Act 2015 was passed. This law requires businesses to prepare and publish a Human Trafficking & Anti-Slavery statement for each financial year. The law also creates the obligation to report on steps taken during the financial year to ensure that human trafficking & slavery is not taking place in any part of its business or supply chains. As JAGER Electrical Contractors Limited ("JAGER")  operates inside the UK, we abide by this law. 

This is JAGER’s first Anti-Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement published in November 2018. This statement is made under section 54, part 5 of The Modern Slavery Act 2015 and outlines the steps taken by JAGER in 2017 to prevent Modern Slavery within the company and ensure it does not take place in our business or supply chains. Please feel free to contact us at info@jagerelectricalltd.co.uk with any comments, queries or suggestions regarding our statement. We encourage a dialogue with all customers and stakeholders who are interested in this topic.

Our Supply Chains :

Our supply chain includes electrical wholesalers, from whom we source materials, and contractors who carry out specialist work on our behalf.

Our Policy:

We are committed to ensuring that there is no slavery or human trafficking in any part of our business, including our supply chains. 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.  
 
As part of our strategy to identify and reduce the risk of inadvertently supporting slavery or Human Trafficking we;

- Strive to build long-standing relationships with our suppliers/contractors and lay out our expectations of business behaviour.
- Create a business ethos of thoroughly knowing our suppliers/contractors to ensure we are working with equally ethical businesses.
- With regards to our national supply chain, we always work with businesses within the UK and we expect these businesses to have suitable anti-slavery and human trafficking policies and processes.  We expect every business within our supply chain to adopt due diligence on the next business in the chain.  It is not practical for us (or any other participant in the chain) to have a direct relationship with all links in the supply chain.
- We have a zero tolerance policy to slavery and human trafficking.  We expect all those in our supply chain and contractors to comply with our values. 
- We check that all new employees/sub-contractors are eligible to work in the UK.

Training : 
 
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 key employees.  

Next Steps :

As part of our ongoing commitment to eliminating slavery and human trafficking, we understand and recognise that our own circumstances and those of our suppliers are constantly evolving.  We will, therefore, continue to review our processes to ensure that they are fit for purpose.

The above Statement has been approved by both Directors, Mr Elliott Riseley and Mr James Goble.
