Due Diligence and being pro-active

The WHS legislation requires employers to be pro-active in managing workplace health and safety. Officers of organisations such as Directors, Board Members and Senior Managers need an overview of their Health, Safety and Environmental (HSE) System status on a regular basis to ensure that they are taking reasonable care and that no person is harmed in the workplace. This is exercising due diligence.

Due diligence includes six key points:

  • Acquiring and keeping up-to-date knowledge of OHS matters
  • Gaining an understanding of OHS business risks
  • Providing appropriate resources and processes to ensure OHS compliance
  • Consideration of and response to incidents, hazards and risks
  • Complying with legal duties
  • Verifying the implementation of OHS management systems by audit and review.

HAZCON can undertake a review of OHS/ WHS compliance and prepare board or management team briefings.
