This resource DVD resource was produced by Manitoba Immigration and Multiculturalism, to create awareness of workplace safety rights and responsibilities among Manitoba newcomers. The video tells the story of a newcomer who agrees to do a job without receiving proper training. Through one dangerous incident, she learns many important lessons:
- There are roles and responsibilities for workplace safety and health.
- A worker has rights – the right to know about hazards, the right to participate in making work safe and the right to refuse dangerous tasks.
- There is a procedure to refuse dangerous work and the employer must investigate. A worker has the right to protection from discrimination and harassment. This means that the worker doesn’t have to be afraid of losing his or her job.
