This statement sets out the approach taken by Datix (comprising of Datix Ltd., Datix (USA) Inc. and Riskman) to understand all potential modern slavery risks related to its business, and the actions undertaken to mitigate any such risks. Although not required to make such a statement, as a business which strives to act honestly, ethically and responsibly the board would like our position known.
Datix actively opposes slavery, servitude, human trafficking and forced labour (Modern Slavery), and acts accordingly to demonstrate the ethical behaviour and conduct of our business operations with honesty, integrity and transparency in both our labour practices and supply chain. Effective systems and controls are in place to safeguard against any form of Modern Slavery taking place within our business or our supply chain.
Datix has been a global pioneer in the field of patient safety over the past three decades and today is the leading provider of software for patient safety and risk management for the healthcare sector.
As an ISO 9001 and ISO 27001 accredited organisation, Datix has in place robust and externally audited systems and processes to ensure its supply chain is managed in accordance with the law and best practice.
We have in place policies and systems to ensure that we identify, assess and mitigate potential risk areas in our supply chains, source goods and services ethically.
We consider the risk of slavery and human trafficking in our own employment practices to be very low to non-existent. We have compliant global labour practices and policies which ensure that we continue to provide employment opportunities free from discrimination, modern slavery and human trafficking.
We recognise there is an increased, but low risk within our supply chains as we are at least one step removed from our operations and labour practices for some goods we procure to deliver the services. However, our methods for selecting suppliers greatly mitigate this risk. We require all suppliers to adhere to the Modern Slavery Act.
