As it relates to workplace health and safety, a due diligence program refers to the precautionary steps a company takes to prevent incidents that could harm employees. When done properly, due diligence not only demonstrates that an organization has taken reasonable care to protect human health and safety, but also reduces incidents, thereby boosting in greater productivity and performance.
