Modern Slavery Statement 2021. Introduction. Slavery is illegal everywhere in the world, but despite that, there are currently an estimated 40.3 million people in modern slavery or victims of human trafficking across the globe. Out of the millions of people trapped in modern slavery, 16 million people are exploited by the private sector, so it is paramount that businesses take action to end these abhorrent practices. At Rope Access, Rigging & Rescue Ltd (RARR Ltd), we are committed to playing our role in eradicating modern slavery in all of its forms from our business and supply chain. We are taking the appropriate steps to ensure that everyone who works with RARR Ltd benefits from a working environment in which their fundamental human rights are respected and anyone that we do business with also upholds these principles. The information following this introduction will detail our policies, processes and actions we have taken to ensure that slavery and human trafficking are not taking place in our supply chains or any part of RARR’s own business. This is our Modern Slavery statement for the financial year ended 31 December 2020 required under the provisions of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 (the “Act”).
