Issue: Sub-Issue 1: Sub-Issue 2: Sub-Issue 3:
voluntarily leaving employment  working conditions  dangerous 


Where a claimant alleges that unsafe working conditions give rise to just cause, the burden is upon him to prove not only that unsafe working conditions exist but that these conditions are the ones which gave rise to his voluntary departure. The question is not to determine whether general working conditions at any given plant are unsafe but only to determine if there exist specific conditions relating to a claimant's job which would justify him leaving out of concern for his health or safety.
