Optimised 3D Engineering Ltd is committed to introducing responsible business practices that make it easier for our clients and suppliers to do business with us. Below is a selection of our company policies that demonstrate how we work responsibly.
What Are Company Policies?
Company policies are trust-building mechanisms between employers and employees. It outlines what employees expect in terms of their conduct and responsibilities at work. In turn, it also buffets employers’ interests against potential legal issues that may arise from employee misconduct. Good company policies help establish a working environment conducive to trust and respect. When both parties trust each other, it helps to foster a more positive and productive work environment. As such, the development and management of our company’s policy should be seen as an investment in the organisation’s future rather than a necessary evil.
Anti-Slavery and Human Trafficking Policy
Contemporary slavery is a professional term used to describe the institutional slavery that continues to occur in present-day society. Estimates of the number of enslaved people today range from around 38 million. This harrowing statistic means more enslaved people today than at any other point in human history. Contemporary slavery takes many forms, including forced labour, debt bondage, sexual slavery, and child soldiers. Victims of contemporary slavery are often lured by false promises of good jobs and better lives. Once ensnared, they are subjected to brutal treatment and denied their fundamental rights. To end contemporary slavery, we must work together to raise awareness of this global problem and help those affected by it. Only by working together can we hope to eradicate this blight on humanity.

When you purchase software, you are typically given a license to use that software under the terms of an end-user license agreement (EULA). This agreement is legally binding between you and the software developer or vendor. It outlines your rights and restrictions concerning the use of the software. For example, most EULAs will specify how many computers you can install the software on, how long you can use the software, and whether you can make copies. Violating the terms of a EULA can result in legal action being taken against you by the software developer or vendor. As such, it is crucial to read and understand a EULA before using any piece of software.
As our world becomes increasingly urbanized and industrialized, it is more important than ever to have strong environmental policies. These policies help ensure that our air and water are clean, that our wastes are appropriately managed, and that our ecosystems are healthy. They also help to protect wildlife and endangered species. In short, environmental policy is essential for ensuring the long-term health of our planet.
Health and Safety Policy
Every business is required to have a health and safety policy. This policy outlines the company’s general approach to managing health and safety within the workplace. The policy must be clear, concise, and easy to understand. The policy should explain who is responsible for health and safety, when they are responsible, and how they will fulfil their responsibilities. A well-written health and safety policy can help ensure that employees are aware of their rights and responsibilities and that the workplace is safe and healthy.
A Quality Policy is an important statement that defines an organization’s commitment to quality. It should be brief and align with the organization’s purpose, mission, and strategic direction. The Quality Policy provides objectives and includes a commitment to meet all applicable requirements (ISO 9001, customer, statutory, or regulatory) and continually improve. By having a Quality Policy in place, an organization can ensure that its products and services meet the highest standards of quality. Additionally, a Quality Policy can help an organization win new business and retain existing customers.
A disclaimer is a formal statement limiting or excluding someone’s liability in connection with something. For example, a website may have a disclaimer stating that the information it contains is not guaranteed to be accurate. If the information on the website turns out to be wrong, the website cannot be held responsible for any damages. Disclaimers can also exclude liability for indirect or consequential damages, such as loss of business or profits. In other words, if the use of a product or service causes loss, the company may not be held liable if it has a disclaimer that states it is not responsible for such damages.
