With the construction sector employing a significant proportion of the global workforce, the industry has been identified as high risk for modern slavery practices.
By identifying workers from outside of the UK as most at risk, we took it upon ourselves to ensure that they could identify themselves and seek help, should they be a victim. Understanding that English is not the first language for many of the workforce, posters and leaflets have been displayed within the welfare facilities, in languages relevant to those on site. This includes Romanian, Albanian, Polish, Lithuanian, Bulgarian and many more.
We have also included a slide on our inductions, so individuals are aware of the signs to look out for and how to report this.
