1.  Tell your supervisor. In all Canadian jurisdictions, including the Federal jurisdiction, the respective occupational health and safety acts state that it is the primary duty of the employer to provide workers with a safe workplace. Your supervisor is the first link in a chain that goes to the top, so they need to be told about the hazards and dangers you discover in the workplace. An important note: No job is worth dying over.  You have the Right to Know, the Right to Participate and the Right to Refuse Dangerous Work.
