Modern Slavery Policy

R VINT ENGINEERING LTD MODERN SLAVERY STATEMENT

Our business, R VINT ENGINEERING LTD, is committed to combatting slavery and human trafficking in its business and supply chains, and we make this statement to assist with compliance with the Modern Slavery Act 2015. This statement relates to the financial year ending October 2019.

As our business has a turnover of less than £36 million, we do not have a legal obligation to produce a modern slavery statement. However:
a. We agree that exploitation within all supply chains ending in the UK is a blight on our society, and we are committed to playing our part in eliminating exploitation;
b. We understand that customers with obligations under the Modern Slavery Act 2015 cannot comply with those duties without our cooperation.
To that end, we confirm that we have examined our own business and, to the extent that it is reasonably practicable, businesses within our supply chain and we confirm the following:

  1. We confirm that within our own business, no relevant offence relating to slavery or human tracking has been committed.
  2. We have made enquiries of businesses that supply directly to us and we are confident that no relevant offence is committed in that business.
  3. Insofar as it was reasonably practicable, we have examined our supply chains and confirm that we found no evidence of slavery or human trafficking. Further details about our business and supply chain are provided below.
    Our business provides structural and civil engineering services; we design in steel, concrete, masonry and timber (and sometimes aluminium). We also provide detailed drainage design on our projects. We also develop visions, delivery strategies, and masterplans; our approach to urban design is based on experienced delivery of innovative major regeneration masterplans that bring practical solutions to help shape our cities and towns. We also design scaffold solutions for projects from railway stations to waste treatment plants. Our design team develops designs to suit site-specific challenges. Our approach to transportation and public realm involves considering all forms of movement, developing visions, and planning this movement through a space so that it is sustainable and efficient, and most importantly allows the city or town to operate and grow.
    Our business structure is as follows:
    • 8 employees in 1 location
    • 1 director to whom all employees report
    We operate in the following countries:
    • The UK
    Our supply chain is as follows:
    We understand that certain industry sectors and geographical regions entail greater risk of exploitation than others. We do not believe that our supply chain is in one of those sectors.

Where it is reasonably practicable, we ensure that businesses in our supply chain have made a similar statement relating to slavery and human trafficking.
The person in our business responsible for assessing matters relating to slavery and human trafficking is: ROBERT VINT

We also encourage all employees to report on any matters relating to slavery or human trafficking in our supply chains of which they become aware.
