Due Diligence

Due diligence refers to the legal and ethical responsibility of employers to take all reasonable precautions and actions to ensure the health and safety of their workers. It involves a proactive approach, where employers must anticipate, identify, and address potential hazards in the workplace to prevent accidents, injuries, or illnesses. This includes complying with relevant OHS regulations, conducting risk assessments, providing necessary training and supervision, implementing safety protocols, and regularly monitoring and reviewing safety measures to ensure their effectiveness. Demonstrating due diligence involves a commitment to ongoing improvement in safety practices, fostering a culture of safety, and actively engaging employees in maintaining a safe and healthy work environment.
