Craig and Parsons Supply Chain

Craig and Parsons are committed to preventing slavery and human trafficking in our corporate activities, and to ensuring, as far as we are able, that our supply chains are free from slavery and human trafficking.

We undertake due diligence when considering taking on new suppliers through our Approved Supplier Questionnaire Agreements.

We recognise that understanding our supply chain will assist us to identify and assess particular product or geographical risks of modern slavery and human trafficking,

Staff are trained in how to identify the signs of slavery and human trafficking and what should be done if this activity is suspected:

Common signs of Forced Labour:

Show signs of physical or psychological abuse, look malnourished or unkempt, or appear withdrawn and neglected. They may have untreated injuries.

Rarely be allowed to travel on their own, seem under the control, influence of others, rarely interact or appear unfamiliar with where they work

Have no identification documents, have few personal possessions and always wear the same clothes day in day out. What clothes they do wear may not be suitable for their work.

Be dropped off / collected for work on a regular basis either very early or late at night

Avoid eye contact, appear frightened or hesitant to talk to strangers and fear law enforcers for many reasons, such as not knowing who to trust or where to get help, fear of deportation, fear of violence to them or their family.
