This online Sexual Harassment Awareness Training Course has been designed to help raise awareness of sexual harassment in a workplace.
60% of women and 40% of men in the UK report being a victim of sexual harassment at some point in their working lives. Anyone can be victims of sexual harassment, no matter your position or gender.
The course helps you to identify, address, remove, and prevent sexual harassment at work - making the 'grey areas' crystal clear.
The course explains how sexual harassment is defined, the impact it has on victims and the steps that should be taken to confront it.
Your working environment should be a place where you feel safe, appreciated and motivated. The environment should also be good for your wellbeing; it should promote dignity and respect.
The course is split into three sections:
The definition of sexual harassment is if sexual behaviour is unwanted and makes the recipient feel intimidated, offended, humiliated, or threatened even if the behaviour isn’t deliberate. Sexual harassment is illegal and is a criminal offence. This is the case even if the recipient welcomed the behaviour in the past, but it’s now unwanted. It is still sexual harassment if it happens outside the workplace but is still related to work such as Christmas parties, overnight conferences or commuting to and from work. It may not be someone directly employed by the company such as a client, customer or supplier but the workplace is still responsible for an employer’s health, safety and wellbeing.
Sexual harassment can be split into three categories:
This includes sexual comments, jokes, questions, requests, demands or threats and can be made in person or by emails, calls, texts and social media.
This includes things such as inappropriate facial expressions, staring or displaying explicit material.
This includes touching, pinching, hugging, stroking and kissing.
A harasser's behaviour may be unintentional, intentional or due to another motive. But regardless of the reason behind it, it is still sexual harassment if the behaviour is unwanted and has a negative impact on you.
Being the victim of sexual harassment, or even just witnessing it, can be incredibly upsetting and can often cause psychological and physical health problems.
The damage that’s been done can affect the victim for a long time afterwards, especially if the case is severe.
This section of the online training sexual harassment training course gives examples of workplace scenarios to see if you can identify if it is sexual harassment or not.
Remember you are looking out for unwanted behaviour.
This section of the online training sexual harassment training course goes into details of how to report sexual harassment such as checking company polices on sexual harassment to find out what the company’s reporting procedure is, collecting evidence, confiding in someone you trust and reporting your concerns to a Manager.
The Manager will have certain steps to follow to resolve the issue such as grievance procedure or disciplinary procedure and possibly mediation/counselling if required. An investigation may take place with help from an outside organisation.
If you should find yourself in an uncomfortable situation directly with the harasser, stay calm, firm and stick to the facts.
If you’re the victim of harassment, you may be able to take it down a legal route, but this should be your last resort.
The course finishes with a test of 5 multiple choice questions based on what you have learnt throughout this course to ensure you have understood the content. Upon successful completion of the test you will be provided with a certificate showing your results as a percentage. Beware, there is a 60% pass rate. If you achieve below this percentage your course will result in failure and you will need to purchase the course again in order to retake it and achieve your certificate.
This course has been created to help you identify sexual harassment in your organisation, however, of course, it is best for you to be able to prevent it in the first place. Your organisation should have a Zero Tolerance rule in place to protect its employees from all kinds of bullying and harassment. This can be achieved by simply creating a positive workplace culture of treating each other with respect, compassion and understanding. This course will help to create such an environment by educating employees of what behavioural standards are expected.
