The Industry Toolkit has been produced to support industry implement the Minerals industry’s commitment to eliminating sexual harassment and the Industry Code on Eliminating Sexual Harassment.

The toolkit comprises Fact Sheets, Guidance and Templates

  • Fact sheets provide concise information and references that underpin why action is required
  • Guidance provides information on what to consider in developing policies and procedures
  • There is not one single way to achieve the objectives of the industry’s commitment and code. Each company can adapt the information in a way that suits their business.
  • A range of reference documents are provided within each document that a company can refer to for further detail.
  • Templates and checklists that can be adapted to suit the company





Acknowledgement: a range of information has been drawn from the Australian Human Rights Commission, Champions of Change Coalition, Safe Work Australia, COMCARE, and state based Human Rights Commissions and Safety and Health Authorities.

MCA thanks these organisations for their extraordinary work over the past few years.
