Modern Slavery Statement for Financial Year 2021/22

This statement is made pursuant to s.54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and sets out the steps that Wilson and Scott has taken and is continuing to take to ensure that modern slavery or human trafficking is not taking place within our business or supply chain.

Wilson & Scott has over 65 years’ experience and is one of the largest Line Marking companies in the UK today, employing around 100 staff. Wilson and Scott has an impressive reputation as a reliable and conscientious supplier of Line Marking solutions to a diverse range of industries.

Wilson and Scott is opposed to all forms of human trafficking and slavery and takes all necessary steps to ensure the promotion of sound, moral and ethical practices throughout the whole of its business. Modern slavery encompasses slavery, servitude, human trafficking and forced labour.

Our high-risk areas

Although checks are made when and where possible, the systems during the past financial year for reviewing and checking our supply chains could be improved.

Our policies

We operate several internal policies to ensure that we are conducting business in an ethical and transparent manner. These include:

  1. Code of conduct
  2. Ethics policy
  3. Whistleblowing policy
  4. Bullying and harassment policy
  5. Equality Diversity and inclusion policy
  6. Recruitment policy
  7. Anti Slavery Policy

 

Employment

We comply with all applicable employment law which is shown via our Terms & conditions of employment. We also pay national minimum wage or above rates.

Training

We regularly communicate with our staff regarding updates to our policies and procedures and they are always available to be accessed via the internal shared drive for reference.

Our performance indicators

We will know the effectiveness of the steps that we are taking to ensure that slavery and/or human trafficking is not taking place within our business or supply chain if when reviewing the policy:

  • No reports are received from employees, the public, or law enforcement agencies to indicate that modern slavery practices have been identified.

 

The following development points from the previous year have now been implemented:

  • Review of existing supply chains
  • Developing a system for supply chain verification
  • Implementing an Anti Slavery Policy

 

We will continue to embed the principles through:

  • providing awareness training to staff on the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and informing them of the appropriate action to take if they suspect a case of slavery or human trafficking
  • ensuring staff involved in procurement activity are aware of and follow modern slavery procurement guidance on GOV.UK
  • ensuring that consideration of the modern slavery risks and prevention are added to Wilson & Scott’s policy review process as an employer and procurer of goods and services
  • making sure Wilson & Scott’s procurement strategies and contract terms and conditions include references to modern slavery and human trafficking
  • continuing to take action to embed a zero-tolerance policy towards modern slavery
  • ensuring that staff involved in buying or procurement and the recruitment and deployment of workers receive training on modern slavery and ethical employment practices
