More work needed to keep mining women safe

THE Australian Mines and Metals Association has told the Western Australian inquiry into sexual harassment against women in the FIFO mining industry that despite a zero tolerance approach the industry still had a higher-then-average prevalence of sexual harassment in its workplaces and more needed to be done to tackle the problem.

The inquiry will look at the prevalence, nature, outcomes and reporting of sexual harassment in FIFO workplaces

Headed by WA Liberals deputy leader Libby Mettam, the inquiry was called after local media aired shocking mine site sex attack allegations at mines in WA's Pilbara.
