About this series
In March, we launched a series featuring a selection of cases, each with a different background and lessons learned. Through this storytelling, we would like to increase the transparency of the Zero Tolerance Protocol handling procedure and help you build a better understanding and knowledge on remediation approaches with some of real-life examples:
- First story on Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) issues
- Second story on unethical behaviour and falsification of documents
Now you can also test how diligent you and your company are when reacting to zero tolerance alerts. Play our ‘due diligence’ game available on the FTA Academy.
Don’t miss out on our next case! Stay tuned for future stories in coming weeks!
