Modern Slavery Act Transparency Statement
The Keil Centre has a zero-tolerance approach to slavery and is committed to preventing acts of slavery and human trafficking from occurring within both its business and supply chain and imposes those same high standards on its suppliers and other business partners.
The Keil Centre is a private limited company of accredited psychologists and human factors specialists. We employ 22 employees in the United Kingdom and Australia. We provide consultancy services to private and public sector organisations in the United Kingdom and worldwide.
The risk of modern slavery within The Keil Centre’s activities is considered low, however, we recognise the potential risks linked to the extended and indirect supply chain of goods and services with the global stretch of our client organisations.
Due Diligence Processes
As an organisation, we:
- Ensure suppliers and corporate clients comply with all applicable laws and standards, including those which relate to the Modern Slavery Act;
- Expect our suppliers and corporate clients to have suitable anti-slavery and human trafficking policies and processes in place within their own businesses and to cascade those policies to their own suppliers;
- Include education surrounding modern slavery and human trafficking in our induction process for new staff, and verify prior to employment that no convictions of offences relating to slavery or human trafficking have been committed;
- Provide regular training in respect of the Modern Slavery Act to our staff and Directors, and ensure the Business Support teams follow the advice and guidance in relation to the Modern Slavery Act;
- Have added a specific item relating to the Modern Slavery Act to the agenda of our Board of Directors;
- Include appropriate terms in our contractual documentation, obliging suppliers and contractors to comply with the Modern Slavery Act and reserving the right for The Keil Centre to audit suppliers and contractors, where we consider it appropriate;
- Encourage staff to identify and report any potential breaches of our anti-slavery policy statement;
- Whistle blowers are protected through our confidential reporting process.
- Have completed an analysis of assurance information from existing suppliers and clients and followed up where relevant;
The above processes are designed to:
- Identify and assess potential risk areas in our business and supply chains.
- Reduce the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring in our business and supply chains.
- Monitor potential risk areas in our business and supply chains.
- Provide adequate protection for whistle blowers.
This statement is made voluntarily pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes our slavery and human trafficking statement for the financial year 2021-2022. It was approved by the board on 06 December 2022.
