What Is Due Diligence? - Erosion Control Central - Erosion Control Experts Calgary

No matter what project you’re working on or planning to tackle next, one of the first things to keep in mind is how you can do your due diligence to protect yourself, those around you, and all project stakeholders. Due diligence refers to the legislation put in place to ensure that businesses and people take personal responsibility and employ safe practices to prevent damage to other persons or property. If this care is not taken, the business or the individual could potentially face fines for negligence. But what does this look like as it relates to erosion control?

As an employer, due diligence comes in the form of making sure all employees are trained properly in health and safety, and that you as the employer are actively working to prevent accidents or injuries on your worksite. This means establishing a health and safety program and adhering to occupational health and safety standards as set forth by applicable legislation.
