Modern Slavery and human Trafficking Statement
Within Omexom UK & RoI
Omexom UK & RoI’s commitment is to recruit, retain and take care of our employees. Internally, robust and transparent recruitment processes are in place for the vetting of new employees and to ensure we are able to confirm their identities and that they are paid directly into an appropriate personal bank account.
Omexom UK & RoI has controls within their organisation including a Code of Ethics, Code of Conduct, Human Rights, and the Employee Handbook including the whistleblowing policy which encourages employees to report concerns to management and management are expected to act on them. Future steps include focusing on the digitalisation of business systems thus allowing the group to strengthen the communication of these controls, empowering and giving responsibility to employees to minimise risks.

Omexom UK & RoI understand that it is critical to the success of our modern slavery strategy and policy to engage with our supply chain to ensure they also adopt the same high standards within their business in this regard.
