Report hazards immediately. Everyone in a workplace shares responsibility for ensuring that their work environment is safe and healthy. Some hazards pose an immediate danger and others take a longer time to become apparent. But both types of hazards must be fixed. If you are aware of a hazard in your workplace, you should make the hazard or area as safe as possible and report the hazard to your supervisor or employer. If you cannot make the hazard or area safe, report it promptly to your supervisor or employer. Once a hazard has been identified, your employer and/or supervisor has a duty to assess the problem and eliminate any hazard that could injure workers.

Hazards can be reported verbally or by filling out a hazard report form available on the Human Resources website, under the Occupational Health & Safety section.
