One of your most important responsibilities as a safety coordinator is to ensure that your company exercises due diligence. The problem is that due diligence is a legal concept, not a blueprint of how to run an OHS program. In addition, due diligence gets decided after the fact. In other words, your company won’t know for sure if the workplace measures it took are enough to show due diligence unless and until a judge decides the issue in a prosecution. And you want to avoid that experience at all costs.
