IWH: Workplace COVID-19 protections and transmission


Dr. Peter Smith shares findings from two recently completed studies from a collaboration between the Institute for Work & Health and Public Health Ontario. From the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, public health strategies to reduce the spread of the coronavirus recognized workplaces as a potential site of transmission. However, there remain large information gaps about workplace COVID-19 protection practices and COVID-19 transmission at work. What types of infection control practices were in place at workplaces that continued to operate? How did these practices across worker socioeconomic characteristics, occupational groups and types of workplaces? How many cases of COVID-19 infection have been due to workplace transmissions? Does this number, again, vary across different industries?
