Bedroq Ltd is committed to ensuring that its staff and any customers it supplies (directly or indirectly) are not subject to behaviour or threats that may amount to modern slavery, human trafficking, forced labour, and or similar human rights abuses.
We are also committed to ensuring our approach to tackling modern slavery in our own business and throughout our supply chains is consistent with our disclosure obligations under the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
This statement sets out the actions Bedroq undertakes to understand all potential modern slavery risks related to the business and to ensure steps are maintained to prevent both slavery and human trafficking.
Bedroq helps high performance businesses take their technology from good to great. We know what good looks like but more importantly, we know what great looks like. We work alongside board level sponsors to make sure that IT investment is fully aligned with the goals of the business.
We are trusted Information Technology and Security Specialists and an IT Managed Service Provider, delivering risk reducing and innovative solutions across Data Loss Prevention (DLP), GDPR Compliance, Cyber Security, IT Network Infrastructure, Telecommunications, and Electronic Security.
We source our equipment from a variety of suppliers in order to meet our customer’s very specific requirements. Our QMS accreditation ensures that we maintain as much transparency as possible in our Supply Chain.
Bedroq’s Ethical Sourcing Policy reflects our commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships. We acknowledge that Modern Slavery still exists in the world and utilise our Ethical Sourcing Policy to ensure the suppliers we do use also adhere to the same standards as ours.
Our Processes for Managing Risk
In order to assess the risk of modern slavery, we use the following processes:
- Identify and assess potential risk areas when considering taking on new suppliers and regularly review our existing supply chains as part of our certification with the ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 27001:2013 standards and our Ethical Sourcing Policy.
- Review the potential for risk at regular intervals, including the possibility of re-auditing a supplier or conducting spot checks as part of our certification with the ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 27001:2013 standards and our Ethical Sourcing Policy.
- Protect whistle blowers as part of Bedroq Code of Practice, in accordance with our commitment within our certification with the ISO27001:2013 and ISO 45001:2018 standards
After due consideration, we have not identified any significant risks of modern slavery, forced labour, or human trafficking in our supply chain. However, we continue to be alert to the potential for problems.
To maintain awareness and ensure a high level of understanding of the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our business, Bedroq has established a Staff Training Policy. This policy ensures all staff are aware of these requirements.
We provide training to all members of staff and this has been incorporated into our induction programme.
This statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes Bedroq’s slavery and human trafficking statement for the calendar year ending 31 December 2021. It has been approved by the Directors, who will review and update it annually.
