MODERN SLAVERY POLICY

Updated 30/10/2020


ShieldWear Limited is a UK supplier of protective equipment . The Company acknowledges responsibility to the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and will ensure clarity within the organisation and with suppliers of goods and services to the business.

The Company will not work with any business knowingly involved in slavery. Any employee with any concerns or information linked to the suspicion or evidence of modern slavery should raise these immediately with the Directors. The Directors will take accountability for implementing this policy and its objectives to ensure that slavery and human trafficking is not taking place within the organisation or its supply chain.

As part of the Company’s due diligence processes into slavery, the supplier approval process will include a supplier survey to obtain approval onto the approved supplier list. Imported products from sources from outside of the UK and EU are possibly more at stake for slavery, therefore intensity of management control required for these sources are frequently checked.

Throughout 2021/2022 the Company aims to provide additional guidance throughout the Company's management and extend the level of training being delivered to appropriate employees across the business.

This statement is made in relation to the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes ShieldWear’s modern slavery statement to date.
