An inquiry into sexual harassment against women in the FIFO mining industry

Community Development and Justice Standing Committee

The Community Development and Justice Standing Committee will inquire into and report on the sexual harassment against women in the FIFO mining industry.
In particular, the Committee will consider:
i. Is there a clear understanding of the prevalence, nature, outcomes and reporting of sexual harassment in FIFO workplaces?
ii. Do existing workplace characteristics and practices – including but not limited to workplace cultures, rosters, drug and alcohol policies and recruitment practices – adequately protect against sexual harassment?
iii. Are current legislation, regulations, policies and practices adequate for FIFO workplaces in Western Australia?
iv. What actions are being taken by industry and government to improve the situation and are there any examples of good practice?
