Workers have a right to be kept safe and healthy, whether they are involved in cleaning up or clocking on for a shift.

If it’s unsafe, speak up if you feel able to. 

It’s a difficult time for many people and kōrero is important – workers should feel safe to raise concerns. Businesses and organisations should listen and do what they can to help, or explain what the plan is if it cannot be fixed straight away.

If you believe you or someone else is at risk of imminent harm you have the right to not do the unsafe work, but you need to let your employer know as soon as possible. You don’t have to restart the work until you believe that you are out of danger.

If you have a concern about unsafe work, you should notify us.
