ComSim Inc. reaffirms its commitment to abjure and discourage any form of slavery and forced servitude or employment throughout its business operations and its value chain networks.
Comsim Inc. is not in an industry with a high risk of modern-day slavery, a risk-based approach has been adopted to review supply chains that fall within industries with a higher risk of this.
Risk assessments are carried out on our suppliers and sub-contracts by our procurement function. We do not usually sub-contract assignments to any third parties or agencies. Our most important suppliers are state governed utilities (Electricity and Gas, Telephone and Internet). As we are not in an industry with a high risk of modern-day slavery, a risk-based approach has been adopted to review supply chains that fall within industries with a higher risk of this.
Relevant training is provided to employees (specifically those involved in procurement functions) in identifying the signs of modern slavery and implementing measures to prevent or minimize the risk of modern-day slavery in our business and supply chains as appropriate.
Only reputable employment or recruitment agencies will be used to source agency workers.
Appropriate identity checks will be carried out to ensure that all new employees are eligible for work with ComSim.
Checks for recruiting new team members
When doing business with new clients and service providers, we conduct background checks and enquiries to understand how they deliver their services. Processes within our business development teams have been designed to help us notice signs of concern early on.
Think – are there any unusual signs in how the business provides its services?
We communicate a zero-tolerance policy in regards to modern slaver to all suppliers, contractors, and business partners at the outset of our business relationship. This is reinforced as appropriate.

We may also terminate any relationship with individuals and organizations working on our behalf if they are in breach of this policy
Any staff member with any concerns regarding modern day slaver can notify the HR team or a whistle-blowing officer to take necessary actions.
This policy enshrines the principles and practices that we shall apply at all times in the conduct of our business.
