Ministry of Labour/Due Diligence
When the worst happens and charges are laid against your company, corporate and legal minds turn to a defence of due diligence, meaning you did all the rights things to prevent the accident or violation of the statutes. Think for a moment about a serious violation or accident that could happen at your workplace. Maybe a sales rep is killed while driving to a customer site. Now think about every possible thing you could have done to prevent that accident: defensive driver training, safe driving procedures, regular training on the procedures, testing to ensure drivers know the provisions of your procedures, winter tires, preventative maintenance for vehicles, taking swift and decisive action when rules are violated, etc. Are you doing everything reasonable to control the risks in your workplace? Do you have the records to prove it? All your prevention efforts lose value if you don’t have good documentation.
