Modern Slavery Policy

Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking – January 2024

Introduction from the Managing Director
Slavery and human trafficking remains a hidden blight on our global society. We all have a responsibility to be alert to the risks, however small, in our business and in the wider supply chain. Staff are expected to report concerns and management are expected to act upon them.

Company business and structure
We are a construction company operating across the North West region of England with offices in Preston, Manchester and Liverpool. We are a privately owned business and have been established since 1907. We undertake building and civil engineering, joinery manufacturing, electrical installation and maintenance in a variety of sectors ranging in value up to £20m per project.

The Company owns two subsidiary companies, T L Electrical Services 2002 Limited, which provides electrical maintenance services and Wright Build Limited, which provides maintenance and general works. Both subsidiary companies operate solely within the UK.

Our supply chains
Our supply chains provide a mix of goods and services principally related to the construction industry.

Our policy on slavery and human trafficking
We are committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in our supply chains or in any part of our business. Our anti-slavery policy reflects our commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships, to implementing and enforcing controls to ensure slavery and human trafficking is not taking place in our supply chains.

Due diligence processes
As part of our initiative to identify and mitigate risk:

  • we directly employ our site based labour and office based staff which ensures that we work within current employment legislation and best practice when recruiting. We work in partnership with labour agencies who are obliged to work within current employment legislation and meet our due
    diligence requirements
  • our geographical scope of business is within the UK and all our sites are effectively and closely supervised
  • where possible we build long standing relationships with suppliers and service providers and make clear our expectations of business behaviour
  • we have in place systems to encourage the reporting of concerns and the protection of whistleblowers
  • we encourage employees to raise any concerns they may have.

Supplier adherence to our Values
We have zero tolerance to slavery and human trafficking. We expect all those in our supply chain and subcontractors to comply with our values.

To ensure a high level of understanding of the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our supply chains and our business, we provide training to relevant members of staff. All Directors have been briefed on the subject.

This statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes the Company slavery and human trafficking statement for the current financial year.

Our client’s responses

” John Turner has won a number of tenders at Edge Hill University and has been consistently successful in completing high quality projects, on programme and on budget. “

” I would like to express our sincere thanks and appreciation to your entire team who were responsible for delivering such a successful project. We would especially like to recognise the dedication and commitment your team gave the project which was completed with minimal disruption to our hospital functions. ”

” The project has been a real success and this is due to the professional and well organised manner in which John Turner’s staff conducted themselves. There was excellent communication with a priority for safeguarding the pupils and staff at all times. “

” It is extremely refreshing to know that the enthusiasm, professionalism, dedication and humour is still available in the right proportions to make things happen in the construction industry. What is most pleasing is that at all times, the requirements of the Client and Church of England Pensions Boards as the end-user was paramount. Collectively, we have achieved completion on time, a building within budget and in some areas exceeded the client’s expectations. “

” Just a line to express my thanks and appreciation of your sterling efforts to secure the completion of this project within the agreed programme. I am impressed by both the attitude and approach of your organisation. Thanks once again on behalf of my colleagues and the clinical staff with whom you developed a true spirit of co-operation under difficult circumstances. “
