ETFO Flowchart for Reporting Workplace Violence and Serious Student Incidents
**For your own records you should keep a copy of all forms being filled out**
If you are involved in a violent incident and/or serious student incident, you are legally required to take one or more of the following steps:
At any point that you find yourself in need of assistance with reporting procedures or you are being blocked from reporting, contact your ETFO local and/or Professional Relations Services at the provincial office: 416-962-3836 or 1-888-838-3836
You have the legal right to refuse work, or part of your work, if you have reason to believe that workplace violence is likely to endanger you. If you are in danger seek immediate assistance.
Teachers must take into account the safety of students before refusing work. If you are considering a work refusal you should seek the advice of your ETFO local.
