Sexual Harassment Prevention Training for Employees

Face-to-face / virtual live – 2 HOUR COURSE

SmartCulture® sexual harassment prevention training for employees

Sexual harassment in the workplace continues to be serious problem within many Australian workplaces. The Australian Human Rights Commission National Inquiry on Sexual Harassment in Australian Workplaces (March 2020) found that it is still everywhere, in every industry, at every level.

Raising awareness and education is fundamental in preventing sexual harassment. We focus on the importance of great leadership, a positive safe culture, avoiding victimisation and empowering bystanders to support affected persons.

About this course

This premium 2.0 hour foundation course was developed for employees by WHS + culture industry expert Karen Maher. It is designed to deepen their understanding of sexual harassment, strengthen approaches around responding to concerns and ultimately work towards effective prevention of this serious issue.

This course is created in alignment with our SmartCulture® solution – developed based on years of research, cases and best practice in these key risk areas – with 5 components – safety, measurable, awareness, respect and team. It provides clear definitions and explanations about sexual harassment, case examples, the key duties, the importance of active bystanders and how it can be prevented. Importantly, the course will also be tailored to align with your organisation’s policies and procedures and explain what an individual can do if they are concerned about behaviours at work.
