If you feel your workplace is unsafe, here are steps you may want to take:


1.  Inform your administrator and your H&S site rep. . Keep notes with dates, times and discussion points.  At this point your administrator should take steps to resolve your concerns.  If they are unable to do so, request that a Potential Incident be completed in Intelex. 


2.  If the unsafe situation is not resolved and you are being required to work in that situation, you have two courses of action. One, you can file a complaint with the Ministry of Labour, Trades and Skills Development.  You can call or file online. Ministry of Labour 519-336-1200

Or you can inform your administrator that you wish to refuse unsafe work.  This is called a work refusal. If you believe a work refusal is appropriate please refer to the following: 

Members have the right to refuse unsafe work.  Below are the work refusal checklist and video from the ETFO website to help you understand your rights. 


At any point you can reach out to the LKETFO office for support.  It is important for you to know, while we will support you through the process, the reporting to the MOLTSD and/or a work refusal cannot be done on behalf of the member.  These are done by the member.
