A crew of female cleaners have been fired for posting TikToks of them messing about with sex toys.
The women violated their employer's 'zero-tolerance' approach to sexual harassment by giving risqué devices to miners at a quarry.
A string of now-deleted videos uploaded to TikTok was enough evidence for bosses at servicing firm ESS, to let the pranksters go.
Clips showed the so-called 'fly in fly out' (FIFO) workers delivering sex toys to male colleagues at the remote Sino Iron project in Pilbara, Western Australia.
Other videos uploaded by the women showed them going into a colleague's room where they began squatting over traffic cones.
ESS confirmed their firing to newspaper The West Australian: "We take these matters very seriously and this behaviour is not aligned with our values or commitments," it said.
Sino Iron project operator CITIC Pacific Mining which contracted the cleaners said the "crude, silly posts are completely unacceptable".
The company added that an investigation would be launched into the incidents shared on TikTok earlier this year, MailOnline reports.
CITIC said: "This contracting group no longer works at Sino Iron. Regardless, the matter will be investigated, and action taken if necessary.

"We will continue to educate all staff and contractors as to expectations on what is acceptable and unacceptable behaviour at our operations."
FIFO workers in Australia have previously come under scrutiny for similar inappropriate work behaviour published on a secret 'confessions' Facebook group .
The social media page shone the spotlight on what goes on behind closed doors at remote mining sites, leading to heightened scrutiny on the industry.
On the private page which was deleted last year, workers boasted about cheating on their partners at home while others shared the repulsive pranks they were pulling on colleagues.
Most disturbingly people admitted to dumping faeces on tooth brushes and inside an office kettle.
X-rated content extended to chats about masturbating on the night shift which workers called "white ribbon" races.
It was joked that one particular job on site required more STI checks than any other and employees spoke openly about using everyday items as sex toys.
One post said: "Who knew steel caps could have so many uses onsite."
