Tackling Modern Slavery Statement
Oak Scaffolding is committed to understanding modern slavery risks and working to combat modern slavery within our own business and supply chains.
Modern slavery is a crime – a violation of fundamental human rights. It takes various forms including slavery, servitude, forced or compulsory labour and human trafficking. All have in common the deprivation of a person’s liberty by another in order to exploit them for personal or commercial gain.
Operating across Sussex, Surrey and Hampshire, Oak Scaffolding delivers scaffolding services.
Oak Scaffolding is committed to acting ethically, with integrity and transparency in all our business dealings. We are committed to implementing and enforcing systems and controls to help ensure slavery and human trafficking are not taking place within our own business and supply chains.
