					    I Refuse. Because it is not Safe!

                                       What is unsafe work?
Unsafe work is work that involves an "imminent danger". An imminent danger can be
a danger that's not normal for that type of work, or
a danger under which a worker in that type of work would not normally do the work.

               Can I refuse to do unsafe work? In 2013 188 People didn’t say NO!
•     Yes, a worker can refuse work which she or he believes puts herself or himself in imminent
      danger, or puts another worker at the workplace in imminent danger.
•     The worker's priority is reporting immediately to both the supervisor and the worker
      health and safety representative, if there is one, the refusal to work and the related safety
      concern. Remaining on site for the shift, while taking every measure to report the refusal,
      minimizes complications down the road.
•     After being told about the refusal, the supervisor investigates the work, fixes it, and gives
      a report to the worker of what was found, and the repairs that were made.
