Can I appeal an inspection report?

 
 

Absolutely.

However, before you launch a formal appeal we encourage you to contact the OH&S staff member or the Director of OH&S to discuss the rationale and reasoning for the order or decision.

Talking may eliminate the formal review or appeal.

When appeal is inevitable, you must do it in writing.

You must deliver your appeal to the director of Occupational Health and Safety within 21 days of the date of the decision you disagree with.

The director will immediately forward it to the board.

The board can stay a decision until the appeal is heard, but it might not. It is not obligated to do so.

A board inquiry into the dispute will begin within 21 days of receiving your appeal.

Once the inquiry is over, the board will decide the issue. That decision is final and binding.

If you have an appeal, please send it to the director of Occupational Health and Safety here:
