Safety basics apply to every member of the UFV community. Brought to you by Environmental Health & Safety, these general safety programs are foundational to your wellbeing as you work and learn.
Right to refuse unsafe work
If a worker has reasonable cause to believe that to carry out a work process would create an undue hazard to the health and safety of any person, they have the right to refuse to undertake such action. This is a collaborative process to ensure that individual workers can protect themselves and identify hazards to the employer.
The Occupational Health and Safety Regulation establishes the process that an individual refusing unsafe work must follow. Read about the right to refuse unsafe work.
