The purpose of Pro Motion Hire’s Human Rights Policy is to communicate to our employees, customers, suppliers, shareholders, and the communities in which we operate, that we are committed to upholding the highest ethical and social standards – and respecting human rights by promoting our values of Excellence, Integrity, Collaboration and Transparency.
Pro Motion Hire delivers equipment solutions for the creative industries to share essential and meaningful stories with global audiences. We are dedicated to adopting internationally recognised human rights standards in all our operations. The international sources of law upon which our human rights standards are based aim to ensure consistent adoption of our principles throughout the Company.
What are human rights?
Human rights are the universal rights that every human being is entitled to enjoy and have protected.
They are most appropriately defined as those rights that require us to treat others as we would want to be treated and protect us – as individuals and groups – from abuses of power. We have adopted a series of human rights principles across our Company:
- We are committed to performing our business to the highest standard of ethics and in a way that’s aligned with our values.
- We are open and fair in dialogue with all our stakeholders and commit to communicating effectively and courteously with external parties.
- We respect all fundamental human rights and will be guided in our business practices and operations by the provisions of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the International Labour Organisation’s (ILO) core labour standards and national legislation.
- All our employees shall conduct themselves following the highest ethical standards.
- We aim to ensure that no form of discrimination is practised in any area of our business including, recruitment, compensation, promotion, training, termination or retirement based on age, disability, gender, gender reassignment, marital status or civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion and belief, or sexual orientation.
- We recognise our employees’ right to join trade unions.
- We are committed to ensuring that our employees can work in an environment free of physical, psychological or verbal abuse, the threat of abuse and sexual or other harassment. Accordingly, such actions are forbidden.
- Following legislation, best practice and general knowledge of our industry, we shall take all reasonable steps to prevent accidents and injury to health arising out of, associated with or in the course of work by minimising so far as is reasonably practicable the causes of hazards inherent in the working environment.
- All employees shall receive an appropriate level of training to enable them to perform their duties.
- Conserving and protecting the environment is a principle of high importance. We shall not engage in activities that have unacceptable risks. Such risks shall be identified as early as possible to facilitate timely and appropriate actions.
- We shall seek to avoid methods of operation which give rise to environmental risks where there are suitable alternatives available and shall endeavour, within our remit, to ensure our clients and supply chain strive for environmentally positive options whenever possible.
- We shall adopt systems that allow the impact of our work on the environment and communities to be evaluated and considered to minimise any negative impact.
- Pro Motion Hire recognises its impact on the communities in which we operate. We are committed to engaging with stakeholders in those communities to ensure that we listen to, learn from, and consider their views as we conduct our business.
- We believe that local issues are most appropriately addressed at the local level. We are committed to creating economic opportunity and fostering goodwill in the communities we operate through locally relevant initiatives.
Pro Motion Hire undertakes to ensure that its Human Rights Policy and those policies which derive from it are communicated effectively to directors, managers and employees, including but not limited to:
- Director’s policies and procedures manual, notice boards, company intranet, employee handbooks and a program of training courses to ensure acceptable levels of understanding within management.
- Pro Motion Hire expects its employees, managers and supply chain to maintain the highest standards according to our principles.
- Management’s responsibility is to communicate the expected standards to our employees and ensure that they appropriately conduct themselves. Disciplinary sanctions shall be enforced against any employee who breaches our human rights principles.
This policy shall be reviewed annually and when necessary to reflect changes in relevant legislation.
