In 2015 the UK government introduced the Modern Slavery Act which consolidated previous legislation in this area focusing on the prevention and prosecution of modern slavery and the protection of victims. It also sought to invoke transparency in supply chains by requiring all businesses with a global turnover of £36m or more which supply goods or services in the UK to publish an annual slavery and trafficking statement.
Whilst Logan Construction’s turnover brings the company under the level of requirement for the Modern Slavery Act 2015, we are committed to maintaining and improving systems and processes to avoid complicity in human rights violations related to our own operations and that of our supply chain, We do not tolerate modern slavery or human trafficking in our organisation or in our supply chain.
Logan Construction’s annual Modern Slavery Statement is available below.
In April 2022, Logan Construction also signed up to the Gangmasters & Labour Abuse Authority’s Construction Protocol which is a joint agreement aimed at establishing collaboration within the construction industry. The Protocol commits signatories to work in partnership to protect vulnerable workers, share information to help stop or prevent exploitation and commit to raising awareness within the supply chain – further information can be found – https://www.gla.gov.uk/i-am-a/i-use-workers/construction-protocol/
