Slavery and Human Trafficking

Slavery & Human Trafficking Statement

The UK’s Modern Slavery Act came into force in 2015. On this page, we explain how we apply policies and procedures under the provisions of this Act.

Ottimo is committed to playing its part to help combat slavery and human trafficking. We are also committed to improving our internal processes to ensure that both our organisation and our supply chain includes no trace of slavery or human trafficking.

Our business

Ottimo is a co-operative partnership offering specialist quantity surveying, commercial management and contract claims support services. The business is operated by 4 partners who bring a wealth of experience from within the construction and transport sectors.

Our specialist area is the provision of commercial and contractual support services to the rail industry.

Our supply chains

Although we have no reason to believe that there is a high risk of modern slavery and human trafficking within our supply chain, we have incorporated anti-slavery clauses into our supplier contracts that will be used going forward to minimise the risk of slavery and human trafficking in our supply chain. We will continue to monitor the risk of being exposed to slavery and human trafficking and adapt and strengthen our policies accordingly.

Approval

This initial statement is made pursuant to section 54 of the UK’s Modern Slavery Act 2015 and has been endorsed by all four of our founding partners. This statement constitutes our slavery and human trafficking statement for the year ending December 2019.
