Health & Safety Reporting
Everyone has the right to work and learn in a safe environment. As a worker in Ontario, you have a duty to complete health and safety reports when necessary. Our employer, the ADSB, has a corresponding obligation to investigate and respond to these reports. The Local is here to assist you.
Workplace Violence + Safe Schools Reporting
Report all violent incidents that cause (or could cause) physical injury, whether physical force is actual, attempted, or threatened. This report is submitted regardless of mitigating or other factors such as age or needs of a student.
Report all serious student incidents for which suspension or expulsion could be considered. This report is also submitted regardless of mitigating or other factors such as age or needs of a student.
The principal is required to provide you with acknowledgement of receipt. The principal must also follow up with you to communicate the results of his or her investigation.
Injuries and Accidents
For all injuries and accidents. If an accident or violent incident caused injury, get immediate first aid or medical attention, if required. As soon as possible, report the incident and any related injury to the principal and submit this form. Report all injuries, with or without first aid or medical attention, no matter how insignificant, as the effects of an injury may be delayed.
You have the legal right to refuse work, or part of your work, if you have reason to believe that workplace violence is likely to endanger you. Teachers must take into account the safety of students before refusing work. Do not leave a class unattended.
If you are considering a work refusal, contact the Local.
