Do You Know Your Rights???

Safety Starts With YOU

Under section 43 in our Health and Safety Act, you have the right to refuse unsafe work. It is your responsibility as much it is your employers. Never forget you only have one life and its yours to take care of. Unsafe - what can it be - wearing jewelry at work, having unsafe equipment or simply not wearing your hard hat or safety glasses. Prevention is your responsibility too.

WSIB (Workman's Health and Safety Insurance Board) requires all work related injuries be reported within the first six months or you loose the right to Workmen's Compensation benefits. It is extremely important that you report your work-related injury IMMEDIATELY to your foreman, co-workers, and WSIB. Telephone number for WSIB in Ottawa is 1-800-267-9601

Most important is to seek Medical attention in you local Hospital and make sure you tell you Doctor exactly what happened!!!

You should get a copy of Form 7 Accident Report from your Employer: This is your proof for your work related injury and please start keeping a dairy of your injury, doctor appointments and treatments.
