Labour Standards Assurance
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
