PSL understands that this requires an ongoing review of both its internal practices in relation to its labour force, and to its distribution channels and supply chains.
PSL does not enter into business with any other organisation, in the United Kingdom or abroad, which knowingly supports or is found to involve itself in slavery, servitude and forced or compulsory labour.
No labour provided to PSL in the pursuance of the provision of its own services is obtained by means of slavery or human trafficking. PSL strictly adheres to the minimum standards required in relation to its responsibilities under relevant employment legislation in the United Kingdom.Supply Chains

In line with PSL’s Risk Policy, any risk of slavery and human trafficking is noted on the company risk register and appropriate actions are taken to mitigate and/or remove any risks.
In general, PSL considers its exposure to slavery/human trafficking to be relatively limited. This is in part due to all of its activities taking place within the UK or ROI where slavery/human trafficking is low. Nonetheless, it has taken steps to ensure that such practices do not take place in its business nor the business of any organisation that distributes its products or supplies goods and/or services to it.Steps
PSL carries out due diligence processes in relation to ensuring slavery and/or human trafficking does not take place in its organisation or supply chains, including conducting a review of the controls of its distributors and suppliers, where appropriate.
PSL has not, to its knowledge, conducted any business with another organisation which has been found to have involved itself with modern slavery.

- Publication of its modern slavery statement to all employees.
- Creation of action plans to address risk to modern slavery.
- Actions taken are aimed at embedding a zero-tolerance policy towards modern slavery.
