Help Us Investigate Canada’s Unhealthy and Unsafe Workplaces During the Coronavirus Pandemic

We're looking for workers who are worried about health and safety at their workplaces during the coronavirus pandemic

While some Canadians are very fortunate to be able to work from home during the coronavirus emergency, millions of Canadian workers still have to show up to work to keep things running and keep the rest of us safe.

While some employers have made adjustments to protect their workers, others are still relying on unhealthy and unsafe workplace practices.

We want to talk to workers who have health and safety concerns in their workplaces for our ongoing COVID-19 Special Investigations series.

Get in touch with us if you’re working during the coronavirus emergency and you have any specific concerns about health and safety:

  • Is your boss making unreasonable requests that could compromise your health?
  • Is your employer failing to provide you with special protective equipment or neglecting to create a clean and healthy work environment?
  • Do you find yourself working in crowded spaces? Is your workplace failing to take steps to promote physical distancing to reduce contact between workers or customers?

We also want to hear from you if you have a specific health and safety concern about your job that we didn’t mention — tell us what we should focus on.

We respect your privacy

We’re investigating health and safety in Canadian workplaces. Because we need to verify that the information you’re sharing is accurate, we have to ask you to provide your contact info and details about your workplace.

Any information you share with us will be held in confidence and used for journalistic purposes only. Your name will not be added to any marketing lists and we will not share any identifiable information about you with any third party whatsoever — including your employer. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
