Why You Need Duty of Care »

The people working for your organisation are your greatest asset

Your approach to Duty of Care demonstrates how important your workers are.  Duty of Care is a topic that carries legal, moral and ethical obligations for employers.  As an employer, your obligations depend on what you are asking your workers to do and where you are asking them to do it, and this could be across international borders and in complex, high-risk environments. As Duty of Care touches all aspects of the employment cycle – from recruitment to exit, it adds even more complexity to how the different aspects are managed, monitored and reviewed in an effective way.
