Modern Slavery Policy
This statement applies to Performance Health International Limited, referred to in this statement as ‘the Organization’. The information included in the statement refers to the financial year 2023.
This statement sets out Performance Health's actions to understand all potential modern slavery risks related to its business and to put in place steps that are aimed at ensuring that there is no slavery or human trafficking in its own business and its supply chains.
The scope of our activities are the manufacture, sale and distribution of medical devices, assistive technology and aids for daily living.
- Countries of operation and supply
Performance Health currently operates worldwide. The organization assesses whether or not particular activities or countries are high risk in relation to slavery or human trafficking by reference to the Supply Chain Business Advisory list of countries at risk from potential ethical standards.
- Process and relevant policies
The organization has not, to its knowledge, conducted any business with another organization which has been found to have involved itself with modern slavery.
The organization operates the following policies that describe its approach to the identification of modern slavery risks and steps to be taken to prevent slavery and human trafficking in its operations:
- Supplier Code of Conduct - outlines the requirements of suppliers with respect to labor and employment rights, environmental health and safety, business ethics and social responsibility, and global trade practices. Suppliers must adhere to this Code of Conduct and operate in full compliance with the laws and regulations of all countries within which they operate. When local laws and regulations are less restrictive than this Code of Conduct, suppliers must adhere to Performance Health’s principles. Failure to comply with internationally recognized standards, and the standards set forth in this Supplier Code of Conduct may result in the termination of the supplier contract and relationship with Performance Health.
- Whistleblowing policy - The Policy is designed to enable employees of the Company to raise concerns internally and at a high level and to disclose information which the individual believes shows malpractice and impropriety. This policy is intended to cover concerns which are in the public interest and may at least initially be investigated separately but might then lead to the invocation of other procedures e.g. disciplinary.
- Code of Business Ethics and Conduct - The organization’s code makes clear to employees the actions and behavior expected of them when representing the organization. The organization strives to maintain the highest standards of employee.
This statement has been approved by the organization’s Chief Executive Officer, who will review and update it each financial year.
