Gendered violence in the construction industry and how to prevent it

A joint CFMEU and CSI workshop

Safe and Respectful Workplaces is a construction industry appropriate Gender Equity training course/workshop. This construction industry focus means that this workshop is uniquely adapted to construction industry Work Health and Safety practices while delivering Active Bystander/Gender Equity training.
