Modern Slavery Statement
Invicta Storage Systems Limited
This statement is made pursuant to s.54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and sets out the steps that Invicta Storage Systems 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. Modern slavery encompasses slavery, servitude, human trafficking and forced labour. Invicta Storage Systems has a zero-tolerance approach to any form of modern slavery. We are committed to acting ethically and with integrity and transparency in all business dealings and to putting effective systems and controls in place to safeguard against any form of modern slavery taking place within the business or our supply chain.
Invicta Storage Systems are a provider of storage solutions & Durasteel passive fire protection systems, based in Margate, United Kingdom. We operate within the UK and worldwide, with offices in Dubai, Qatar and the US.
Our high-risk areas
No high-risk areas have been identified within our business relevant to Modern Slavery at this moment in time, however we continuously review our processes to identify any potential risk areas.
We operate a number of internal policies to ensure that we are conducting business in an ethical and transparent manner. These include:
1. Anti-bribery and corruption policy. This policy states that we carry out business in an honest, transparent and ethical manner, complying with all laws and regulations in the UK and any other country which we currently operate in/may operate in in the future.
2. Recruitment policy. We operate a robust recruitment policy, including conducting eligibility to work in the UK checks for all employees to safeguard against human trafficking or individuals being forced to work against their will.
3. Code of business conduct. This code explains the manner in which we behave as an organisation and how we expect our employees and suppliers to act.
4. Equal Opportunities policy statement. This statement ensures that all current and prospective staff are treated in an equal manner, based on their merits, abilities and potential and without any discrimination on grounds such as age, sex, disability, race, colour, sexual orientation or social/economic status.
Invicta Storage Systems operates a supplier policy and maintains a preferred supplier list. We conduct due diligence on all suppliers before allowing them to become a preferred supplier. This due diligence includes an online search to ensure that particular organisation has never been convicted of offenses relating to modern slavery. Our anti-slavery policy forms part of our contract with all suppliers and they are required to confirm that no part of their business operations contradicts this policy.
In addition to the above, as part of our contract with suppliers, we require that they confirm to us that:
1. They have taken steps to eradicate modern slavery within their business
2. They hold their own suppliers to account over modern slavery
3. (For UK based suppliers) They pay their employees at least the national minimum wage / national living wage (as appropriate)
4. (For international suppliers) They pay their employees any prevailing minimum wage applicable within their country of operations
5. We may terminate the contract at any time should any instances of modern slavery come to light
We regularly conduct training for our procurement/buying teams so that they understand the signs of modern slavery and what to do if they suspect that it is taking place within our supply chain.
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:
· No reports are received from employees, the public, or law enforcement agencies to indicate that modern slavery practices have been identified.
