How to file a complaint

You can make a health and safety complaint 2 ways:

  1. file a complaint online (preferred for non-urgent situations where no immediate danger exists)
  2. call the OHS Contact Centre

Anyone can report unhealthy or unsafe conditions at a workplace. You don’t have to be an employee to do so. You may choose to remain anonymous when filing a complaint through either method.

After you make a complaint

  • calls are answered by the OHS Contact Centre advisors
  • OHS acknowledges receipt of online complaints via email within 3 business days
  • follow-up actions by OHS depend on the nature of the complaint and the number of complaints being processed
