Policy Statements

Corporate Social Responsibility Policy

Kelly’s is committed to meeting the aspirations set out in the Companies combined Environmental and Health & Safety management strategy.

In so doing we will adopt policies and arrangements which recognise our social, economic and environmental responsibilities so as to demonstrate to our stakeholders through our statements and performance that our organisation is committed to delivering value to its clients and society at large.

In giving effect to this commitment, we will:

  • Set high standards and expectations for our employees to act ethically, professionally and with integrity to meet legislative requirements and public expectations for an organisation operating within our sector.
  • Be open and honest in communicating our policies, strategies, targets, and performance to our stakeholders within the necessary need to maintain appropriate confidentiality for those elements of client confidentiality for which we have specific responsibilities.
  • Promote and support partnerships with local stakeholders in the areas that we operate to seek to reassure stakeholders over their conversions and seek to address these through constant dialogue.
  • Seek to achieve a high level of business performance delivering the best value for the services we provide, whilst effectively managing risks to the organisation and its stakeholders.

Modern Slavery Policy

Kelly’s Storage Limited offers services within the southern regions of the country. It is our approach to comply with all laws and regulations relevant to our business within the UK where we operate. Following the implementation of the Modern Slavery Act 2015, Kelly’s Storage Limited is committed to maintaining and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure modern slavery is not taking place anywhere within our own business or in any of our supply chains. Modern slavery is criminal activity and a violation of human rights. The deprivation of a person’s liberty by another to exploit them for personal or commercial gain is unacceptable. For those reasons, slavery and human trafficking are a matter of zero tolerance at Kelly’s Storage Limited. All staff involved in the engagement of suppliers must communicate our zero-tolerance approach to all prospective parties at the outset of our business relationship and monitor our approach as appropriate thereafter. We may terminate our relationship with third parties engaged with us if they do not comply with this Policy. This Policy applies to all members, employees, agents, consultants and those parties in our supply chain, wherever in the world they operate. Any reported breach of this Policy will b investigated and may lead to disciplinary action which subsequently could result in employee dismissal.

Responsibility for reporting incidents of slavery

The detection and reporting of slavery is the responsibility of all of us. You should raise any concerns about any issue or suspicion of modern slavery in any part of our business or supply chain at the earliest possible stage. Suitable channels of communication by which you can report confidentially any suspicion of slavery are detailed in the firm’s Whistleblowing Procedures, which can be found in the Employee Handbook. This policy is reviewed annually.

Health and Safety General Policy

At Kelly’s Storage, we recognise our duties under current health and safety legislation and we will endeavour to meet the requirements of this legislation and maintain a safe and healthy working environment. Our managers and Supervisors are informed of their responsibilities to ensure they take all reasonable precautions, to ensure the safety, health ad welfare of those that are likely to be affected by the operations of our business.

Kelly’s Storage Ltd recognise its duty to make regular assessment of the hazards and risks created in the course of our business.

We also recognise our duty, so far as is reasonably practicable:

  • To meet our legal obligations to maintain safe and healthy working conditions
  • To provide adequate control of health and safety risks so identified;
  • To consult with our employees on matters affecting their health and safety;
  • To provide and maintain safe plant and equipment
  • To ensure the safe handling and use of substances;
  • To provide information, instruction, and training where necessary for our workforce, taking account of any who do not have English as a first language 
  • To ensure that all workers are competent to do their work, and to give them appropriate training;
  • To prevent accidents and cases of work related to ill health;
  • To actively manage and supervise health and safety at work;
  • To have access to competent advice;
  • To seek continuous improvement in our health and safety performance and management through regular (at least annual) review and revision of this policy; and
  • To provide the resource required to make this policy and our Health and Safety arrangements effective.

We also recognise:

  • Our duty to co-operate and work with other employees when we work at premises or sites under their control to ensure the continued health and safety of all those at work; and
  • Our duty to co-operate and work with other employers and their workers, when their workers come into our premises or sites to do work for us, to ensure the health and safety of everyone at work.

To help achieve our objectives and ensure our employees recognise their duties under health and safety legislation whilst at work, we will also inform them of their duty to take reasonable care for themselves and for others who might be affected by their activities. We achieve this by explaining their duty and setting out our company health and safety rules in an Employees Safety Handbook which is made available to every worker employed by us.
