Modern Slavery Act

Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement

Introduction

Haas Automation has a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery and human trafficking and is committed to acting in an ethical manner, with integrity and transparency in all business dealings.

Structure

Haas Automation is the sole supplier of Haas machine tools in the UK and is responsible for installing, repairing and servicing machines sold.  We have been importing machine tools from Haas Inc. based in California, USA for nearly 30 years. 

Responsibility

The Commercial Director has the responsibility for establishing the slavery and human trafficking statement and reviewing the risks of slavery and human trafficking in the organisation on an annual basis.  In addition, staff and management are expected to report and act upon any concerns in this area should they arise.

Policies

Wherever possible, Haas Automation builds long-standing relationships with suppliers, ensuring they are fully aware of Haas Automations’ expectations of business behaviour. 

Haas Automation carries out fair and transparent recruitment processes and completes all relevant pre-employment checks prior to staff being employed, which includes ensuring the right to work in the UK and compliance with the National Living Wage and National Minimum Wage requirements.

Due Diligence

Haas Automation plans to identify and monitor risk areas to mitigate the risk of slavery or human trafficking in the delivery of its services and supply chain. Our procedures for due diligence are proportional to the likelihood and severity of the risk.

To ensure a high level of understanding of the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our business, we intend to conduct staff awareness initiatives.

Our Commitment

This statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes our slavery and human trafficking statement.  It has been approved by the Board of Directors, who will review and update annually.
