Across Canada there are laws in place to protect workers on the job. This occupational health and safety legislation outlines three important rights to all workers to ensure they have the knowledge they need to be safe on the job and the freedom to participate in health and safety activities in their workplace. These rights are:

  • The right to know what hazards are present in the workplace;
  • The right to participate in keeping your workplace health and safe; and
  • The right to refuse work that you believe to be dangerous to yourself or your co-workers.

Distribute these bookmarks to demonstrate your commitment to these rights and to increase worker awareness of the rights they have on the job.

This bookmark is printed double-sided, with English on one side and French on the other. Note that a minimum order of 15 bookmarks is required.
