What to do if my workplace injury causes me to take time away from work. What to do if I feel threatened in the workplace. How to use MSDS Fetch (Material Safety Data Sheet)

3 Reporting Unsafe Conditions “Regulation 3.10: Reporting unsafe conditions Whenever a person observes what appears to be an unsafe or harmful condition or act the person must report it as soon as possible to a supervisor or to the employer, and the person receiving the report must investigate the reported unsafe condition or act and must ensure that any necessary corrective action is taken without delay.”

4 Right to Refuse Unsafe Work “3.12 Procedure for Refusal (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. (2) A worker who refuses to carry out a work process or operate a tool, appliance or equipment pursuant to Subsection 1 must immediately report the circumstances of the unsafe condition to his or her supervisor or employer.”

5 Right to Refuse Cont’… “(3) A supervisor or employer receiving a report made under Subsection 2 must immediately investigate the matter and (a) fix it or (b) tell the person why it is not unsafe.” “(4) If the procedure under Subsection 3 does not resolve the matter” then it must be investigated with another employee.”

6 Still refusing… “ (5) If the investigation under Subsection 4 does not resolve the matter and the worker continues to refuse to carry out the work process… then an officer (from WorkSafe BC) must investigate the matter without undue delay and issue whatever orders are deemed necessary.”

7 Workplace Health and Safety Rules (1) The employer must provide for each workplace (medical room) first aid equipment, facilities, supplies and first aid personnel that can immediately support an employee (NOT a student – this is about the employees) with an injury Employees must let supervisor know about an injury and then fill in Form 6. Supervisor will then fill in Form 7 (Employer’s Injury Report). Both are forwarded to the Board Office and filed.

10 Violence in the Workplace Cont”… “4.29 Procedures and policies If a risk of injury to workers from violence is identified by an assessment performed under section 4.28 the employer must (a) fix it (procedures etc..) and (b) if elimination of the risk to workers is not possible, establish procedures to minimize the risk to workers (Student Safety Plan).”

11 Violence in the Workplace Cont’… “4.30 Instruction of workers (1) An employer must inform workers who may be exposed to the risk of violence of the nature and extent of the risk Advice to consult physician (3) The employer must ensure that a worker reporting an injury or adverse symptom as a result of an incident of violence is advised to consult a physician of the worker's choice for treatment or referral.”
