Due Diligence - Alberta is part of VISTA's growing family of Silver Series online training programs, 1-2 hours in length and delivered via the web. These programs are ideal for new operator training.

Due diligence is a way to think about safety as an integral part of every job. It is a lifesaver in that it helps ensure a safe workplace. Whether your job environment is a large, open-pit mine or a construction job site in a crowded urban area, everyone can benefit from an understanding of the principles of due diligence.

Due diligence encourages not only thinking about compliance with legislated standards but also taking steps to help ensure the health and safety of workers and others on the work site. Employers and workers must do all that is reasonably practical to ensure the safety of everyone in a work area. It means working with care, showing that you care enough about your workplace and your colleagues to know your responsibilities, and taking all reasonable steps to carry them out safely.

This program covers topics that include:

The definition of due diligence
Strict versus absolute liability
Responsibilities of employers, supervisors and workers for health and safety in the workplace
The dangers of non-compliance with the due diligence provisions of the OH&S Act
A due diligence checklist for employers
Penalties for offenses under the OH&S Act
