Policy commitment on anti-slavery

Policy commitment on anti-slavery

In accordance with national laws and international principles on antislavery we do in Laerdal, and in our subsidiaries, take steps to assure we live according to these principles. We recognize that modern slavery including human trafficking, forced labor, bonded labor, child slavery, and hazardous child labor can occur in every industry and sector. Where problems or risks are identified, we take steps to understand what these risks are and to manage them accordingly.

In the Laerdal Code of Conduct and in the Laerdal Medical Code of Conduct for Business Relationships we communicate our commitment to working according to the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights ("UNGPs") and the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development ("OECD") Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises, referred to as the international minimum standard for responsible business conduct (UNGPs/OECD).

To ensure that work is performed according to the standard, Laerdal conducts regular impact assessments in own operations. Laerdal expects that its business relationships also meet the international standard and assess the impacts of their activities by either utilizing the same tools and methodology as Laerdal or documenting that any alternatives selected to ensure compliance with the standard and can be used to adequately assess the impacts of their activities, especially those that are directly linked to Laerdal. To meet the UNGPs/OECD our business relationships need to extend the requirement to their business relationships as well.
