Work Refusal Procedures

The university strives to ensure that all work is conducted in a healthy and safe manner. Any identified health and safety concern or unsafe condition should be brought to the attention of a supervisor or department head.

The Ontario Occupational Health and Safety Act gives workers the right to refuse work that he or she believes to be unsafe. The Act sets out the specific procedure that must be followed during the work refusal process. It is important that employers, supervisors, workers and joint health and safety committee members/representatives understand this procedure.

In the event that a work refusal is initiated, please follow the Work Refusal Procedures.
