This is the third in the series of interviews by Gabrielle Carlton and Rob Sams. In this interview Dr Long discusses the issue of Due Diligence and the need to bring into perspective the human aspects of holistic work and safety thinking. Whilst the definition of due diligence seems specific, each of the six duties of due diligence are quite general and subjective to demonstrate. Rather than fix on definition Dr Long puts forward the need to focus on culture, humans and context. Whilst the Act seems specific, humans and behaviour are uncertain and relationships are often the focus of the court. The demand to demonstrate: understanding, knowledge, minimizing risk, 'appropriate' communication and resourcing, processes for compliance and 'appropriate' controls (from the Act) are all subjective and conditioned by culture and context.
