In some instances, a worker will take notice of unsafe conditions and will understandably want to avoid doing a particular task until the problem is remedied. However, refusing to work due to unsafe conditions is typically a worker's right only if there is an "imminent danger," or good reason to believe there is such a danger.

Survey of pedestrian accidents and ways to improve their safety

Whether an individual is walking on a sidewalk, at the edge of a road or in a parking lot, anytime a person is walking in the area where vehicle are present, there is a risk of an accident occurring.
