There is an executive due diligence obligation to ensure that the Chain of Responsibility parties comply with their safety duties. This extends to an executive of a legal entity who must exercise due diligence to ensure the legal entity complies with the safety duty. Safety duties cover all major safety offences that executives can manage as part of their role.
This course trains about six due diligence areas that managers, leaders, business owners and directors should understand: Knowledge, Understanding, Resources, Information, Compliance and Verification. The course discusses the four chain of responsibility areas of speed, fatigue, mass, dimension and loading and vehicle standards. The training includes a robust assessment, certificate and report.
The Chain of Responsibility is a means of admitting evidence of what is known about risks and controls. It may be used by a court to determine what is reasonably practicable in the circumstances to which it relates. Your corporate reputation and financial position can suffer if you are, directly or indirectly, involved in a heavy vehicle incident or breach of the Law that impacts public safety.
