WorkSafe ACT reminds businesses to report sexual assault incidents
ACT businesses are reminded that the law requires them to inform WorkSafe ACT of any sexual assault incident that occurs in their workplace.
WorkSafe ACT issued the reminder following reports of workplace sexual assault in the ACT last week.
Canberra's workplace safety regulator says under the Work Health and Safety (WHS) laws; workplace sexual assault is a notifiable incident and must be reported to the safety agency.
“Everyone has a right to a safe and healthy workplace and PCBUs are required to fulfil all of their obligations relating to notifiable incidents,” WorkSafe ACT said.
