Refusal of Unsafe Work Flowchart

On August 22, 2022, WorkSafeBC implemented amendments to the Occupational Health and Safety regulations, creating an entirely new section (3.12.1). Employers must now ensure a subsequent worker is advised in writing of any unresolved work refusal made in relation to assigned work.

This flowchart can help you navigate the refusal of unsafe work, how to reassign work, and the steps involved to remedy the unsafe condition.
