 Any area of work, be it plant or building, or any items of equipment which is considered dangerous by an employee should, in the first instance, be reported to his or her immediate supervisor.

If the supervisor is not available, the employee must notify the hazard to the responsible officer for his or her workplace.

After taking the action outlined above, should any employee remain dissatisfied with the action taken by the supervisor or the senior officer he or she may request that the matter be referred to the Health and Safety Section for an opinion. At this stage in the proceedings the employee may also, if he or she so wishes, seek the support of the Trade Union.
