Training Session on May 24: Your right to refuse unsafe work

Have you ever had an uneasy feeling before carrying out work because you weren't sure it was safe? 

Maybe you performed the task because you felt you had no choice? 

You do have a choice and the right to protect yourself from harm.

Learn how to invoke your right to refuse unsafe work under the Occupational Health and Safety Regulation, Section 3.12 which states:

(1) A person must not carry out or cause to be carried out any work process or operate or cause to be operated any tool, appliance or equipment if that person has reasonable cause to believe that to do so would create an undue hazard to the health and safety of any person.

Drop in between 2:00 - 4:00 pm on Tuesday, May 24th in room A1707 at the Forensic Psychiatric Hospital. Your BCGEU Occupational Health and Safety Officer will be on hand to answer your questions. 

You’ll learn the specific steps you must follow in order to refuse unsafe work and get your safety concerns addressed.
