In this second instalment of the WHS Safety Law series, our WHS specialist partners Aaron Anderson (Brisbane) and Steve Bell (Melbourne) share their thoughts on the important issue of Director and Officer 'due diligence' under safety laws.

Steve and Aaron explore the nature of the obligations, but also have a lively discussion about whether the laws are actually working as intended, and are being enforced by regulators fairly and accurately.
