    Interesting comments made at the SIA Qld Safety Conference regarding due diligence. When are you on notice or alert that you need to address issues in your organisation? It appears that if some changes to legislation or even decisions regarding issues relating to health and safety (e.g. bullying/harassment)have been 'posted' on the internet, you may have been 'told'. Given the amount of information that appears regarding decisions or even investigations into allegations of bullying/harassment, is it reasonable to accept that the posting of such decisions or information on the internet means that you should do something, even if your organisation is not directly impacted by the decision? How do organisations address findings from other organisations? Perhaps organisations can use decisions from other organisations as a way of learning what can go wrong, and use the 'report' or information to assess gaps in their own due diligence requirements.
