The NRL Group is pleased to provide the 2017 Annual Statement with regards to the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
The NRL Group operates a zero-tolerance policy towards slavery of any form. Our policy statement towards this issue is published on our website and is circulated annually to all employees as part of our ongoing commitment to awareness of this issue.
The link to our policy statement is here.
The NRL Group provides recruitment, training, rail maintenance and Non-Destructive testing (NDT) services to the technical, engineering and construction sectors. As such the overwhelming majority (2017 95%, 2016 94%) of the goods and services that form our supply chain are the UK-based labour that we resource on behalf of our UK-based clients.
Inherent in our business is a compliance program that tests and determines the UK right-to-work status of our contractors. This program is implemented by all parts of our business and training is provided to all appropriate team members on a regular basis.
The NRL Group is pleased that there were no known instances in 2017 of slavery of any form affecting the NRL Group business, and will continue to implement our zero-tolerance approach throughout 2018 and beyond.
