My co-workers and I have complained about safety issues at work, but it is still unsafe, what can we do?
If you believe that continuing work will cause you serious harm, you can refuse to work after notifying your employer of the reasons for refusing to work.
If several of you in your workplace are really worried about health and safety issues and your employer hasn’t done anything to deal with your concerns, you might be able to go on a strike. For this to be legal, you need to have good reason to believe that there is a very serious risk to your health or safety. Even if you’re still going to work, it counts as a strike if you refuse to do certain things that are usually part of your job.
Remember, you should also contact WorkSafe to try to resolve the problem.
