Modern slavery & human trafficking statement

We are committed to conducting our business ethically and responsibly, and as part of this commitment we fully support the abolition of, and the protection against, slavery and human trafficking which have no place in the world.

Modern slavery is an international crime affecting an estimated 40.3 million people around the world. This growing global issue transcends age, gender and ethnicities. It includes victims trafficked from overseas and vulnerable people in our communities who are forced illegally to work against their will across many different sectors such as agriculture, hospitality, construction, retail and manufacturing.

This statement outlines the steps that Petro Well Services, and all associated companies, (PWS) have taken to assess our operational actions to understand all potential modern slavery risks related to its business. This will allow us to put in place steps that are aimed at ensuring that there is no slavery or human trafficking in its own business, or in its supply chain.

Our organisation

PWS focuses on the provision and operation of modular drilling/workover/P&A units globally for the onshore & offshore oil & gas industry, currently employing 50 people, in the current locations:

  • Norway
  • United Kingdom
  • Abu Dhabi

We currently have approximately 100 suppliers that provide various goods and services from the manufacture / provision of equipment to payroll support.

Our approach

Our business activities have been reviewed and have been considered as low risk in terms of the potential for involving the exploitation, slavery or trafficking of people.  Our code of conduct requires all employees and those working directly for the company to support our policy on standing against slavery or human trafficking.

Our supply chain carries a slightly higher potential for the exploitation of people in the manufacturing and supply processes, so within our terms and conditions documentation we stipulate that our suppliers must accept that trading with us requires them to respect human rights and stand against slavery and human trafficking.

Training

By providing awareness training to our personnel we will enable & educate them with the basic understanding of modern slavery & human trafficking and how we can tackle, prevent and report such issues.

Clear policy

We operate the following policies that describe our approach to the identification of modern slavery risks and steps to be taken to prevent slavery and human trafficking in our operations:

  • Employee code of conduct: makes clear to employees the actions and behaviours expected of them when representing PWS. We strive to maintain the highest standards of employee conduct and ethical behaviour when operating abroad and dealing with our supply chain.
  • Supplier/Procurement code of conduct: We are committed to ensuring that our suppliers meet our own high ethical standards. Suppliers are required to demonstrate that they provide safe working conditions where necessary, treat workers with dignity and respect, and act ethically and within the law in their use of labour.  Where necessary, we will work with suppliers to ensure that they meet the standards of the code and improve their worker's working conditions. However, serious, and/or continuous violations of our supplier code of conduct will lead to the termination of our business relationship with them.
  • Selection & Recruitment Policy: We use only specified, reputable employment agencies to source our labour. We verify the practices of any new agency we may wish to work with, before accepting any workers or placing recruitment requirements for employees from that agency. We will strive to be, as a minimum, a living wage employer, wherever we work.  We also ensure all employees have the right to work in the United Kingdom, Norway or whichever country we may be operating.
Supplier due diligence

We undertake due diligence when considering taking on new suppliers, and regularly review our existing ones. Due diligence and reviews include:

  • mapping the supply chain broadly to assess product or geographical risks of modern slavery and human trafficking (ref: Global Slavery Index);
  • evaluating the modern slavery and human trafficking risks of each new supplier;
  • conducting supplier audits or assessments, which include focus areas for slavery and human trafficking where higher risks are identified;
Focus areas / Initiatives

We will:

  • Require, as a minimum, our supply chain personnel/HR professionals to have completed awareness training on modern slavery;
  • Review our supplier assessment processes and ensure it clearly captures the evaluation of modern slavery standards of suppliers before they enter the supply chain; and
  • Review/Monitor our existing supply chain, and identify the risk associated with each supplier.
Management approval

This statement has been approved by our senior management team, who will review annually as a minimum.
