White Ribbon Accreditation

​Working to become a White Ribbon Accredited Workplace

Research shows 1 in 6 Australian women, and 1 in 19 Australian men, have experienced physical violence from a current partner or former partner.

Queensland Rail is committed to promoting a safe and respectful workplace and is currently seeking to become a White Ribbon Accredited Workplace by mid-2019.

White Ribbon Accredited Workplaces promote respectful, safe and inclusive cultures and take active steps to prevent and respond to domestic violence.

As part of our accreditation journey we will:

  • enhance individual capability to recognise and respond to individuals affected by domestic violence
  • improve or implement new practices and procedures
  • encourage individuals to take an active role in creating a positive and safe workplace
  • empower our people to stand up, speak out and act to stop domestic violence.

Participation in events such as the Darkness to Daylight Challenge and White Ribbon Day, as well as our long-standing and ongoing partnership with RizeUp, are just some of the ways we are playing an active role in the communities in which we operate to address domestic and family violence.
