Thermal Fluid Solution’s Modern Slavery Policy
Our Business, Structure & Supply Chain

In addition, the company also supplies thermal oils and associated heating system products. These products are generally delivered straight from the supplier to the customer.
The company employs 14 people, including design, administration, technical and sales staff and site engineers. Our operation reach is worldwide, and our head office is based near Buxton, Derbyshire in the UK.
TFS are committed to ensuring that there is no slavery or human trafficking in any part of our business, and to imposing the same high standards on our suppliers. Our employees are expected to act ethically and with integrity at all times and are encouraged to raise concerns about our supply chain at any time.
Supplier Code of Conduct
TFS are committed to ensuring that our suppliers adhere to the highest standards of ethical conduct. In order to do our upmost to eliminate Modern Slavery within our supply chain, TFS request all suppliers sign TFS’s ‘Supplier Declaration’ form and provide their own Modern Slavery Policy where possible to ensure that they are operating in an ethical and responsible manner.
The values of integrity, honesty and openness are embedded within TFS’s culture. We are committed to acting ethically and transparently in all our business dealings and we take our social responsibilities very seriously. The following policies have been adopted by the organisation and are relevant to the identification of modern slavery risks within the supply chain and detail how TFS employees are required to act in an ethical and responsible manner.
- Equal Opportunities Policy
- Health & Safety Policy (including Code of Conduct)
- Modern Slavery Policy
- Environmental Policy
Due Diligence Processes
As part of our efforts to identify Modern Slavery within our supply chain, TFS undertakes the following due diligence steps when taking on new suppliers and evaluating existing suppliers –
- Conduct a supplier assessment and request they complete our ‘Supplier Declaration’ form and/or provide a copy of their Modern Slavery Policy where possible
- Annually review each suppliers’ documentation
- Provide adequate protection for whistle-blowers within the business
TFS are committed to reviewing the effectiveness of our policies and procedures, and the company intends to explore how to measure and assess the management of the risks that are identified.
To ensure a high level of understanding of Modern Slavery within our supply chain, TFS intends to provide access to training for all staff involved within the company’s supply chain.
