CBSA is refusing to allow the submission of Lab 1070 Hazardous Occurrence Investigation Reports when employees are exposed to the virus responsible for COVID-19, a hazardous substance.

If this happens to you, we recommend that you:

  • Fill out the Hazard Complaint Report form; and
  • Email that form and the 127.1 Complaint to your immediate manager, c.c.’ing your CIU Branch President and the Co-Chair of your Workplace Health and Safety Committee.

Please be sure to retain a copy of both the form and the email for your records.

Thank you for all you do to protect Canadians and let’s keep doing everything we can to keep each other safe.
