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


In the absence of some reasonable objective standard, one's belief that conditions are unsafe, however genuine that belief may be, does not establish that as a fact unless that belief be accepted by others. It is not shown here that his genuine belief was a reasonable one. Although it may have been open to the safety representatives of the union at the site where the complaint was lodged, as well as the claimant himself, to go to the Ministry of Labour, it is the claimant who must prove that he had just cause for leaving his employment.
