DID YOU KNOW?
The Canada Labour Code says that occupational health and safety is to prevent the following at work:
- occurrences of harassment and violence and
- physical or psychological injuries and illnesses
As a worker, it’s your responsibility to report to the employer:
- anything or circumstance in a workplace that is likely to be hazardous (to cause injury or illness)
Your union OH&S reps receive the following reports from the company:
- Health and safety complaint e-report or ACF32 paper reports (Mainline)
- Work-related illness/injury e-report or ACF32-8 (Mainline)
- Health and safety report / Workplace illness injury report (Rouge)
Your manual (ch. 2) may require that you fill out other reports, but:
- If we see these, they will be heavily de-identified and we will not be able to follow up with you.
- Currently, only a health and safety complaint e-report guarantees a dialogue with management to resolve your problem and response. And, if the company can’t resolve it directly with you, gives you the option of submitting it to the joint health and safety committee. You can file this report in addition to those required in the manual, if applicable.
- You are the eyes and ears on the front lines when it comes to safety.
- If the company isn’t away of issues, it can’t warn you of them or fix them.
- Safety reporting is non-punitive, which means that you can confidently report – even if it involves a mistake.
We can’t represent you without hearing from you! Once a report is filed, please notify the Union with the report #, so that we can ensure receipt in the system.
