Modern Slavery & Human Trafficking

Reviewed April 2022

This Modern Slavery & Human Trafficking Policy is designed to implement the commitment of Todd Research Ltd, the employer to the Modern Day Slavery Act 2015. It is the responsibility of every employee to ensure his or her own conduct conforms to the expected standards and reflects the Policies Statements.
The aim of the policy is to expel acts of modern day slavery and human trafficking from within its business and from within its supply chain.
The Company acknowledges responsibility to the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and will ensure transparency within the organisation and with its suppliers of goods and services.
As part of the companies due diligence processes into slavery and human trafficking, the approved supplier process will incorporate a review of the controls undertaken by our suppliers. Imported goods from sources from outside the UK and the EU are identified as being potentially more at risk for slavery and human trafficking issues.
The level of management control required for these sources will be monitored. The company will not support or deal with any business who is knowingly involved in slavery or human trafficking.
The Operations Director will take responsibility for implementing this policy and its objectives and are committed to providing adequate resources and investment to ensure that slavery and human trafficking is not taking place within the company or its supply chain.

Waste Management

Reviewed April 2022

Todd Research Ltd will adopt the principles of the ‘best practicable environmental option’ in the delivery of its waste management services. The company will apply a ‘waste hierarchical approach’, to reduce, reuse, recycle and recover waste products in preference to the disposal of waste to landfill.
There is a legal requirement for all who produce, keep or dispose of waste of any type to comply with the various regulations and the Duty of Care under Environmental Protection legislation. The company recognises the importance of meeting these legal requirements and to manage its waste responsibly, reduce the volume of waste sent to landfill and maximise reuse and recycling where possible. The company requires all staff, contractors and anyone else making use of the premises to comply with this Policy to ensure compliance with all waste legislation.
