Labour Standards Assurance

Avicenna Surgical are comitted to ensuring a safe and fair working environment for our team

It is the aim of Avicenna Surgical to make an ongoing contribution to reducing the risk of social exploitation throughout not only
all of our internal operations, but also throughout the whole of our supply chain. Avicenna Surgical commit to only procure finished goods,
raw materials and services from organisations that can demonstrate compliance to ethical trading.

Avicenna Surgical will never make a purchasing decision based solely on cost, financial gain or profitability.

Our Labour Standards Assurance policy guides our seamless adherence to labour and social requirements including ISO 20400 and the NHS Supply Chain Labour Standards Assurance System (LSAS).

Our ethical objective is to ensure that all people within our supply chain are treated with respect and have rights with regards
to employment, including but not limited to the following:

  • Elimination of child labour
  • The rights to freely choose employment
  • Freedom of association
  • Payment of a living wage
  • Working hours that comply with national laws
  • Equal opportunities
  • Abolishment of exploitation
  • Freedom from intimidation
  • A safe and healthy working environment
Avicenna Surgical are comitted to ensuring a safe and fair working environment for our team
We will seek out suppliers who share our commitment to sound ethical performance and improvement, and use our purchasing power where practical, to influence and encourage suppliers in order to create a more reliable market for ethically produced products and services.

Modern Slavery

Avicenna Surgical specifically recognises that Modern Slavery is a crime and a violation of fundamental human rights. We are aware that Modern Slavery takes various forms, including slavery, servitude, forced and compulsory labour and human trafficking, all of which have in common the deprivation of a person’s liberty by another in order to exploit them for personal or commercial gain. Avicenna is therefore committed to full compliance with the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
