We are excited to introduce the "Step Up, Step In: Active Bystander Intervention Guidelines”, designed to empower each and every one of us to create a safe and inclusive work environment. As an industry committed to fostering respect and support, we believe that active bystander intervention plays a vital role in preventing harm and discrimination.

Check out Step Up, Step In explaining the importance and principles of active bystander intervention on how to:

  • recognise and assess situations
  • decide to act
  • engage safely
  • support people
  • document and report incidents
  • and advocate for change.

We encourage you to familiarise yourself with the contents of the guidelines and actively participate in promoting active bystander intervention within your organisation. Your commitment to this initiative will contribute to a workplace where everyone feels valued, respected, and safe.
