The right to refuse unsafe work is one of the three basic health and
safety rights achieved by the labour movement, along with the right to know
about the hazards in your workplace, and the right to participate in workplace
health and safety decisions.
Procedures and circumstances around the right to refuse vary from
province to province. Below you’ll find the steps you should take to refuse
unsafe work in your jurisdiction.
You have the legal right to a healthy and safe workplace.
The law in Alberta states that you shall refuse all
unsafe work if you believe there is an imminent danger (that is not normal for
the occupation or activity) to yourself or others caused by a tool, appliance,
equipment or work procedure at the worksite, according to Section 35 of the
Occupational Health and Safety Act.
Here’s how you can refuse unsafe work:
Notify your employer at the worksite that you are refusing work
because you don’t think it is safe and state your reason for refusal.
The supervisor must investigate and take action to eliminate the
danger. There must be a written record of your notification, the
investigation, and action taken. A copy of the report must be provided
If, in your opinion, a danger still exists, you can file a
complaint with a government occupational health and safety officer.
The officer shall investigate the complaint, and document actions
taken in a written report. A copy of the report must be provided
If you are not satisfied with the officer’s report and
recommendations, you must legally return to work, but may appeal the
report within 30 days.
Winter approaching fast…faster than we probably would like in too in Alberta. This means we will have to think about prepping for it sooner than usual. Maintaining your vehicle before winter is a great way to insure you get to and from wherever safe and without haste…minus the winter road conditions. Although we don’t provide car maintenance at ACTI, we still want to remind everyone to prepare for the coming months and to be as safe as possible in all facets of your daily life.
