What is Duty of Care in the Workplace?

Duty of care means recognizing that your company has a legal and moral obligation to keep its employees, customers, contractors, and shareholders safe while at the workplace or conducting business. This includes implementing policies and systems that continually evaluate and mitigate people-based risks or events.  Under OSHA, the business owner can be held liable for not providing a safe and healthy workplace.  And the EEOC enforces federal anti-discrimination laws with heavy penalties.

Workplace Safety Problems

There has been a spike in workplace violence.  Mass shootings are on the rise.  Distracted workers cause accidents and make mistakes.  Bullying, harassment, and discrimination are toxic material liabilities. Disgruntled or stressed individuals can become insider threats.   Employees exhibit concerning behavior before the breaking point. One time or annual background checks are expensive and do not close the real-time information gaps that compromise workplace safety.  Employees or contractors may be participating in activities, breaking policies, or demonstrating behavior that exposes an organization to substantial risk.
