New guides – Preventing workplace sexual harassment and violence and aggression – guidance for small businesses

Safe Work Australia has released new guides to assist small businesses like Newsagents to introduce policies and actions aimed at preventing workplace sexual harassment and violence and aggression.
All employers and “persons conducting a business or undertaking” (PCBU) are obliged to manage the risks of sexual harassment and violence and aggression occurring in the workplace.
NANA believes the easy to read and relatively short guides (3 and 4 pages) are essential for all Newsagents, especially since employees in retail environments have on occasions been subject to aggressive behaviour during the COVID-19 pandemic.
