Resonics Ltd is committed to improving practices to combat acts of modern day slavery and human trafficking from within its own business as well as its supply chain.
Resonics has been established since 2013 and our core business is the provision of bespoke acoustic solutions within the construction industry ranging from large commercial properties to schools and village halls. We deliver projects up to approximately £300,000 under most forms of contract primarily within the commercial office sector. The vast majority of our projects are carried out in London.
High Risk Areas
Resonics is aware that the construction industry is highly prone to corruption and puts in measures to minimise Resonics exposure to corruption in respect of slavery and human trafficking.
Labour – Resonics is a bespoke acoustic installation solution company and requires temporary staff at times to facilitate the demand of works. In order to minimise the risk of forced labour and human trafficking Resonics carries out its own due diligence within their recruitment process in order to confirm that temporary staff are permitted to work in the UK prior to them commencing work.
Supply Chain – Resonics carries out its due diligence on its suppliers of material to ensure that there has been no slavery, human trafficking, child labour or forced labour during the manufacture of these products.
The company operates a number of policies to address the risks facing the company:
- Supplier policy: We conduct due diligence on our new suppliers and subcontractors before trading with them. We request confirmation from our suppliers and their subcontractors to ensure that they have policies and reviews in place and are compliant with the requirements of the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
- Orders placed by the company with suppliers include a clause that the supplier is compliant with the Modern Slavery Act 2015 as a condition of trade.
- We will expect all companies in our supply chain to comply with our values and we will neither support nor deal with any business knowingly involved in slavery or human trafficking. In addition, we may terminate the business relationship with any supplier who fails to provide adequate assurances that they have assessed and addressed their own level of risk.
- Anti-Slavery Policy – This sets out the company’s position on modern slavery and human trafficking and is available to all employees. Staff receive training on this new policy as part of their induction so they understand the signs of modern slavery and what to do if they suspect it is taking place within our supply chain.
- Recruitment Policy – All new employees are subject to checks to verify their eligibility to work in the UK. All new staff receive training as part of the company induction procedure on how to identify the risks of human trafficking and modern slavery.
This statement is made pursuant to section 54 (1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes our Modern slavery and human trafficking statement for the year ended 31st December 2017 with the policy being reviewed annually.
