The Story Behind Omnimedical
In August 2019, we at Omnimedical identified a gap within the PPE industry, learning that the brand of the supplier is irrelevant and that it is critical to reduce the timescale between the production and the receiving of the personal protective equipment.
With an aim to modernise and innovate the supply of PPE and Medical Grade plastics, we work efficiently to manufacture in-house from within our specialist facility in Hampshire, or through our network of sister production facilities located in India, New Delhi and Hubei Province, China.
In comparison to a PPE retail organisation, our bespoke model approach allows us to keep our customer base condensed to ensure that we provide unbeatable levels of service and value to those healthcare professionals.
Prevent Modern Slavery and Trafficking
Here at Omnimedical, we have a zero tolerance for those who abuse human rights – at any point during our supply chain.
As a leading provider of PPE for all healthcare professionals we strive to prevent slavery and effectively support workers rights within our supply hubs – avoiding at all costs situations that involve the violations of human rights.
This is reflected in supporting the rights of our employees within our national and international manufacturing facilities.
We also strive to lead the field when it comes to logistical PPE, and we believe that we can only do so if we are socially responsible and ethically support our employment practices and in relation to our employees human rights.
As a common practice, we also carry out a full due diligence on any company or supplier that we partner with to ensure that the same code of conduct is followed. This includes the sourcing of material from ethical sources, as well as the way that they treat their labour force.
Our guidelines for behaviour towards our employees are based upon the principles detailed in the following documents: PLEASE LIST THESE BELOW
