Now available: Refusal of Unsafe Work in K-12 FAQ

BCPSEA has partnered with sector stakeholders to prepare a new resource: Refusal of Unsafe Work in K-12 Public Education: Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs).

This resource was developed in response to updates to the Occupational Health and Safety Regulation and WorkSafeBC Guideline G3.12 Refusal of unsafe work. The document provides sector-specific answers to questions that commonly come up during complex work refusals within the K-12 public school system, particularly involving interactions with dysregulated students.
