We at Wesco Electrical Ltd condemn slavery and human trafficking, and are committed to ensuring that all people are treated with dignity and respect when we are sourcing and supplying products and activities throughout Ireland and the EU.
Wesco Electrical Ltd is a provider of electrical, mechanical and security products to the construction retail, commercial, hospitality and industrial sector.
Our supply chains
Our supply chains include manufacturers and distributors in Ireland, the United Kingdom and across the European Union.
We are committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in any part of our business, and in so far as is possible, to requiring our suppliers to hold similar ethos. Our slavery and human trafficking policy statement reflects our commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure slavery and human trafficking is not taking place anywhere in our supply chains.
We ensure all those in our supply and logistics chains comply with our values. This audit consists of reviewing their approach to slavery and human trafficking and ensuring they comply with employment legislation. Wesco Electrical Ltd prides itself in ensuring we are fair to do business with. We acknowledge all local labour legislation, pay our employees the required rates for the job and audit our supply chain to ensure labour suppliers are adhering to local legislation requirements.
We have systems in place to identify, assess and monitor potential risk areas in our supply chains and protect whistleblowers who highlight to us any risk of slavery or human trafficking within our business. As part of our initiative to identify and mitigate risk, we follow all local labour legislation and ensure our suppliers adhere to the requirements of the Modern Slavery Act 2015. We check passports and visas of employees within the organisation and audit our supply chains to ensure they comply with legal working requirements.
We train our staff to ensure a high level of understanding of the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our supply chains and our business. We also require our business partners to provide training to their staff, suppliers and providers.
We use the following key performance indicators to measure how effective we have been to ensure that slavery and human trafficking is not taking place in any part of our business or supply chains:
- Written Confirmation from our suppliers including a copy of their anti-slavery policy to ensure they adhere to the legislation
- Written confirmation from our logistics partners including a copy of their anti-slavery policy to ensure they adhere to the legislation
