The Modern Slavery Act 2015
Organisational Statement

 Outsource Automation Solutions Ltd, hereafter referred to as OAS, pledges to ensure that our organisation and supply chain are free from slavery and human trafficking. We are committed to improving, monitoring and maintaining best practice by adopting a zero-tolerance approach throughout all aspects of our organisation. 

 Within our supply chains and workforce, OAS seeks to:

  1. Identify and assess potential risk areas
  2. Prevent of slavery and human trafficking from occurring
  3. Monitor potential risk areas
  4. Protect whistle blowers 

 OAS will ensure that all relevant new suppliers accept and comply with our zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery and human trafficking. To identify and mitigate risk, relevant new suppliers must provide details of their existing programme to ensure human trafficking and slavery do not exist in their operations and supply chain. OAS will not award contracts where suppliers do not demonstrate an appropriate level of commitment to ensuring that slavery and human trafficking are not taking place in their own organisation and supply chain.

OAS is governed by UK Law and as such is committed to and ensures that all employees are paid the national minimum wage.

OAS policies and procedures, together with our values, make it clear to employees the actions and behaviour expected of them when representing the organisation. OAS strives to maintain the highest standards of employee conduct and ethical behaviour when providing services to our customers.

We have robust recruitment policies to ensure that we do not promote or encourage slavery and human trafficking. We ensure that all individuals who are employed at OAS have strong references, a good history of employment and pass a robust on-boarding process. We ensure that all recruitment agencies we work with adopt our ethos and high level of checks. Any risks or concerns that arise during the recruitment process are thoroughly evaluated by our Directors and are appropriately handled on a case by case basis.

OAS encourages all of its workers, customers and other business partners to report any concerns surrounding slavery and human trafficking related to the direct activities, or the supply chains of, the organisation. This includes any circumstances that may give rise to an enhanced risk of slavery or human trafficking.

Our whistleblowing process allows staff to report any concerns directly to a Director in total confidence and without fear of retaliation.

This statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of The Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes our human trafficking and modern slavery statement for the  financial year ending 31st March 2024. This statement was approved by the Directors on 13th March 2023.
