Modern Slavery Policy

This statement is made on behalf of the board of Cappagh with regards to the Modern Slavery Act 2015 which requires large employers to be transparent about their efforts to eradicate Slavery and Human Trafficking in their supply Chain.

Human Trafficking and Slavery Policy 

Cappagh is strongly opposed to any form of slavery or human trafficking. The Act makes provisions about slavery, servitude and forced or compulsory labour and about human trafficking, including provision for the protection of victims. In accordance with the Act, this statement articulates our approach, the culture we wish to engender and policies and practices around recognising and preventing human trafficking and slavery in the organisation itself and in our supply chain. 

Cappagh employs over 500 staff in a number of locations throughout the UK. Our workers are recruited from throughout the EU and employed in the UK. Cappagh is one of the UK's leading utility and civil engineering contractors. The company was established in 1973.
