What is a Modern Slavery Risk Assessment form?

The Modern Slavery Risk Assessment tool enables organisations to assess and mitigate the risk of modern slavery within their operations and supply chains. By evaluating various factors such as geographical locations, business relationships, and industry practices, it helps identify potential vulnerabilities and areas of concern.

This assessment aids in developing robust strategies and policies to combat modern slavery, ensuring compliance with legal requirements and ethical standards. By proactively addressing these risks, organisations can uphold their commitment to human rights and contribute to eradicating modern slavery from their business practices and wider society.
