Workers in Canada have Three Basic Rights

Right to Know

You have a right to know what hazards are present in the workplace, and be given the information, training, and supervision you need to protect yourself.

Right to Participate

You have a right to participate in keeping your workplace healthy and safe, which may include selecting or being a health and safety representative or committee member. You also have a right to report unsafe conditions and practices.

Right to Refuse

You can refuse work that you believe to be dangerous to yourself or your co-workers. When you exercise your right to refuse work, you must follow the proper procedure.
