Make Safe: Protect Your Workplace from Violence and Harassment
Just under half (47%) of workers in Canada either witnessed or experienced inappropriate sexualized or discriminatory behavior in a work-related setting in the previous year. 
Make Safe is a training program aimed at mitigating sexual harassment in the tourism and hospitality industry.
Just as in other industries, sexual harassment and other forms of sexual violence occur in tourism and hospitality workplaces. The nature of jobs in places like bars, restaurants, hotels, and events can make people more vulnerable to unwanted sexualized behaviours from customers, colleagues, and even superiors.
Customers may also face sexual harassment and violence in these workplaces.
Unfortunately, such actions are often diminished as being harmless, playful, or “not that big a deal”. The result: they’ve been normalized in many establishments, cultures, and societies.
Make Safe is about eliminating these behaviours and creating SAFE workplaces. How? By being aware of what constitutes sexual violence, learning how to mitigate it, and taking a zero-tolerance approach.
Make Safe training contains two parts, available online in both English and French:
All Make Safe resources are available free of charge for a limited time. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
