Human Rights Assessment 2016
Operations that have been subject to human rights reviews or impact assessments
Total number and percentage of operations that have been subject to human rights reviews or human rights impact assessments, by country.
As part of the quarterly risk register all our business units (100%) are required to carry out a risk assessment, which includes human rights as part of the review process.
On an annual basis as part of the review of our Modern Slavery Transparency statement the Board considers the risk of modern slavery in our business model for the whole business.
Details of our approach are included on page 70 of our Annual Report.
Employee training on human rights policies or procedures
We take a risk-based approach to the employees who require training. All applicable employees, must complete training, including on our Code of Conduct, before they are given access to the Babcock network on joining the company after which annual refresher training is compulsory.
Whistleblowing lines, for reporting breaches of the Code of Conduct, are widely displayed across Babcock sites and on our intranet and website together with our Anti-Bribery and Corruption/Ethical Policy.
We continue to raise awareness of Modern Slavery within our procurement and supply chain function.
