Advanced Safety Plus is an Equal Opportunities Employer
As a matter of good practice and good business, the aim of our policy is to ensure that no job applicant or employee receives less favourable treatment than another on the grounds of age, gender, race, sexual orientation, disability, gender reassignment, religion or belief, trade union activity, or any other grounds which cannot be justified by specific reference to the job or situation as laid down in the Equality Act 2010. We will also guard against making assumptions about the characteristics of individuals. Harassment in any form will not be tolerated.
The Managing Director, has responsibility for ensuring the effective implementation and monitoring of fair employment practices with regards to all staff matters.
The Equality Act 2010 replaces the existing anti-discrimination laws with a single Act with the objective of removing inconsistencies and making it easier to understand and comply with. Its aim is to protect people from direct discrimination and indirect discrimination on the basis of the following protected characteristics:
- Gender reassignment
- Pregnancy and maternity
- Marriage and Civil Partnership
- Race – this includes ethnic or national origins, colour and nationality
- Religion or belief
- Sexual orientation
The Practice is committed to a programme of action to make this policy fully effective.
Advanced Safety Plus Approach to Diversity
Advanced Safety Plus has a clear understanding of its local communities using all relevant information, including the input of local partners, and knows the profile of our staff. We know, record and monitor information about the ethnicity, vulnerability and disability of all our people.
Advanced Safety Plus can provide information when required about services and service standards in a comprehensive range of languages and formats. We work with our communities to ensure fair representation and working opportunities.
Advanced Safety Plus does not discriminate against any person or other organisation on the grounds of race, ethnic origin, disability, nationality, gender, sexuality, age, class, appearance, religion, responsibility for dependants, unrelated criminal activities, being HIV positive or having AIDS, or any other matter which causes a person to be treated with injustice.
Advanced Safety Plus can provide a range of support to enable our staff with specific needs to be involved, for example by using accessible venues for meetings, translating information, providing hearing loop systems, etc, when specifically required.
As a fair pay employer we provide the same pay and conditions for employees doing work that requires similar levels of effort, skills, knowledge and responsibility.
Our organisation’s Equality and Diversity policy is conveyed with regular communication to all our people via training, group meetings, intranet and e-mail. Advanced Safety Plus takes Equality and Diversity very seriously and our offices reflect the communities in which we operate.
Advanced Safety Plus ensures that it does not employ a person who is subject to immigration control, by obtaining a full CV, P45 and NI details for all permanent and temporary staff taken on to the Advanced Safety Plus payroll. Work Permit status is checked at application stage, if applicable.
