At Total Scaffold Access Limited, we recognise that slavery and human trafficking are significant human rights issues and are committed to taking appropriate and proportionate steps to mitigate the risk of these occurring within our business chain.
As a scaffolding business operating within the UK, the key areas of our operation that could be affected by slavery and human trafficking are our directly hired employees and subcontractor operatives working on sites for our company.
The steps that we take to mitigate risks in relation to each of these areas are as follows:
We verify that all employees have the right to work in the UK upon commencement of their employment.
We make all employees aware of their working hours, leave and absence entitlements and other employment benefits via the Employee Handbook.
We ensure their employees have the right to work in the UK.
We ask all site operatives to provide evidence of their CSCS cards.
