This concluding chapter summarizes key themes and presents some final thoughts. It argues that the limited language on refusal rights negotiated in Convention No. 155 has become global policy. The International Labor Organization (ILO) should recognize how these norms create procedural burdens to justice and undermine the protection of all occupational health and safety. Workers should be protected against acts of discrimination and retaliation regarding the working environment any time worker action is taken in good faith, independent of any workplace hazard threshold, and even if these actions are improper procedurally. Given the social inequalities at work and the numerous pressures within employment relations, this new global norm must be among the top strategies to assure workers are protected. The broad protection of workers against an employer's discriminatory and retaliatory acts is the cornerstone to protecting the fundamental human right to safety and health at work.
