    • Make sure you have proper supervision to do your job safely
    • Create an environment where you can ask questions and raise any safety concerns
    • Correct unsafe conditions promptly
    • Provide personal protective equipment (PPE) when you need it — and demonstrate how to use it properly
    • Investigate and report all incidents to WorkSafeBC
