Modern Slavery Policy
Modern slavery encompasses slavery, forced and compulsory labour, and human trafficking whereby individuals are deprived of their freedom and are exploited for commercial or personal gain as enacted in the Modern Slavery Act 2015 (‘the Act’).
Oncology Imaging Systems Ltd (OIS) has a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery and to acting with integrity in all its dealings, relationships, and supply chains. It expects the same high standards from all its staff, suppliers, contractors, and those with whom it does business. This policy applies to all employees, workers, consultants, and other persons doing business with OIS including all its contractors, and suppliers.
OIS acknowledges the risk that a supply chain may involve the use of a hidden or unknown subcontractor reliant on forced labour. Although OIS considers the risk of modern slavery to be low due to the nature of its supply chains, it takes its responsibilities to combat modern slavery seriously as demonstrated by its promotion and adoption of the following policy measures:
The prevention, detection, and reporting of modern slavery in any part of its business or supply chains is the responsibility of all those working for OIS or under its control. Employees are required to avoid any activity that might lead to, or suggest, a breach of this policy. Any genuine suspicion or knowledge of slavery or human trafficking must be immediately reported to the Managing Director.
Mandatory awareness training is provided to all employees upon their induction to the company and refreshed annually.
Appropriate due diligence processes must be carried out in relation to modern slavery which may include considering human rights in a sector or country, the type of sector in which a service provider operates, the countries from which services are provided, the nature of relationships with suppliers, and the complexity of supply chain(s).
All supply chain lines need to be continually risk assessed and managed in relation to modern slavery. Suppliers are subjected to an annual evaluation and any high-risk suppliers may be audited.
We aim to encourage openness and will support anyone who raises genuine concerns in good faith under this policy, even if they turn out to be mistaken. We are committed to ensuring no one suffers any detrimental treatment as a result of reporting in good faith their suspicion that modern slavery of whatever form is or may be taking place in any part of our own business or in any of our supply chains.
