Due diligence requires that all reasonable steps are taken to prevent harm to workers. “All reasonable steps” are based on the level of judgment and care that would be reasonably expected of an individual in the given circumstances. An organization that actively manages health and safety and takes all reasonable steps to prevent harm to workers is due diligence.
Due diligence steps that you:
- Identify every hazard of the workplace
- Implement all preventive measures
- Communicate adequately to all necessary personnel
