Training to help employees understand the UK Bribery Act will help companies to meet the new British Standard BS 10500, according to Cardinus Risk Management.
BS 10500 is an anti-bribery management system that provides a framework for managing and continually improving an organisation's policies, procedures and processes.
The law requires that companies have "adequate procedures" in place to combat bribery and corruption. According to the British Standards Institution, BS 10500 is a checklist to make sure companies have included everything necessary. It also saves time transforming the legislation into practical measures.
Jon Abbott, managing director – ergonomics and safety at Cardinus Risk Management, said, “The introduction of a British Standard is very welcome. We believe that the new Cardinus e-learning course, Act Against Bribery and Corruption, helps organisations meet the legal requirement of having adequate procedures in place. Our e-learning provides all the information and advice companies need to protect themselves.”
