All team members are expected to carefully read and must adhere to this guide, regardless
of whether the individuals are regular, temporary or contractual.
All contractors, consultants, representatives, agents and others who may be temporarily
assigned to work for or provide services to the company will comply with this in connection
with any work or services performed.
It is important to note that the company reserves the right to modify or revise this at any
time, with or without notice, subject to applicable law. Please note that this does not set

1. Business Integrity and Ethical Standards Policy:
The organisation has well documented Business Integrity and Ethical Standards Policy
Paharpur-3P management team members and any team members who have supervisory
responsibilities, have a special responsibility for instilling a culture of unwavering integrity,
ethical business practices, and a commitment to this document. Managers must lead by
example and set a tone of absolute compliance.
Managers cannot ignore violations or potential violations of any requirements in this
document that they learn of through any means; rather, managers are required to report
their concerns and the basis for their concerns to their superiors.
Failure to comply with this may result in disciplinary action, up to and including termination
of employment. Paharpur-3P, at its discretion, may take other appropriate action, such as
training or revising of policies and processes.
2. Health & Safety:
To be the best place to work, Paharpur-3P has to be a safe place to work. Your safety is
important to many people: your family, your co-workers and your community. We comply
with all safety laws and believe that safety comes before anything else. We recognise that

Team members must know and comply with all safety standards, laws and regulations that
apply to their jobs. Team members should never take risks that could endanger themselves
or others in doing their jobs. We strive to eliminate accidents in all of our facilities by
ensuring a safe and healthy work environment for all team members and others in the plant,
and by looking for ways to continuously improve.

3. Discrimination and Fair Treatment
The best place to work provides a positive work environment where everyone is treated with
respect, dignity and fairness. Discrimination or retaliation against team members on any
basis will not be tolerated. Our working relationships need to reflect our commitment to
fairness and respect, and be business-like and free of any bias or prejudice.
We have a performance-oriented culture. This means that our individual performance and
achievement of goals determines our advancement and compensation. Your gender, sexual
orientation, age, race, national origin and/or identity and belief system, whom you know,
where you went to school, or to whom you are related do not matter at Paharpur-3P.
Performance and/or job qualifications are the only acceptable differentiators in the hiring,
advancement and treatment of all team members. Only when we operate with this
objectivity, will we move towards achieving our vision.
4. Workplace Harassment, Bullying and Violence
Each of us should be treated and should treat others with respect and dignity. There is no
room in Paharpur-3P culture for harassment, bullying or violence of any kind, in any work-
related setting. This includes business trips, business meetings and/or business-related social
We expect this same standard of behaviour to apply both to our team members and to all
others with whom we work, such as outside vendors, consultants and customers.
Harassment can take many forms – verbal, nonverbal, physical or sexual. Harassment is any
behaviour that makes others feel unwelcome, uncomfortable or is intended to intimidate or
prevent them from effectively performing their job. Examples include negative stereotyping,
threats or intimidation, demeaning jokes, and circulating or posting inappropriate materials.
Sexual harassment can include a range of behaviours, some more subtle than others, such
as unwelcome advances, demeaning comments, jokes, language or gestures.

regulations and standards for use. To accomplish continual improvement of our products and
services, we listen to our customers and strive to exceed customer expectations at every

We are driven by our mission to delight customers with value-added offerings that exceed
their current and future needs. We will achieve this by competing fairly, with the highest
level of integrity, in every market where we operate. This is integral to our operations and
