Sexual and gender-based harassment can have a huge impact on workers’ physical and mental health. Having policies and training is a start, but not enough to prevent this harm and provide a healthy and safe workplace. To meet their WHS duties, PCBUs need to understand when, where and what tasks increase the risk of sexual harassment, and put in place effective control measures that don’t just rely on people following written policies – as this often isn’t enough.
