California Transparency in Supply Chains Act
Weld-On Adhesives, Inc. is dedicated to conducting business in a lawful and ethical manner; it is our expectation that our suppliers also conduct themselves in such a manner. Weld-On is aware that slavery and human trafficking are crimes under state, federal and international law. Weld-On takes the following measures on slavery and human trafficking from our supply chain:
- Researches the level of risk with regard to slavery, human trafficking, forced and prison labor in every country we source from. This serves as a foundation to help us make legal, ethical and responsible business decisions.
- Requires all suppliers to comply with applicable human trafficking and slavery laws in the country of business. Additionally, direct suppliers are required to certify that materials used in products for sale are in compliance with applicable slavery and human trafficking laws in the country of purchase.
- Conducts occasional announced and unannounced supplier audits with trained employees or qualified third party inspectors.
- In cases of non-compliance, Weld-On policy is to not only cease doing business with the supplier in violation, but also report the violation to local authorities.
- Conducts internal corporate responsibility training for employees that have direct responsibility for supply chain management to ensure that they are knowledgeable of slavery and human trafficking issues and focused on mitigating risk.
