WHO′s department of Occupational and Workplace Health, in collaboration with the ICOH Scientific Committee on Occupational Health for Health Workers, have compiled a survey of health and safety of health workers during the COVID-19 crisis. The survey is very short (takes about 7 minutes) and is basically a needs assessment to focus on the topics that our peers around the world identify as most important. Link:

Results will be monitored on a weekly basis. It will allow to get a picture of the risk factors for health and safety of health workers, now, in COVID-19, and the adequacy of the measures for their control.

The target group of survey respondents is very broad – from professionals providing services for occupational safety and health, IPC, psycho-social support, to frontline health workers, managers and decision makers in the health sector, social partners, and academia.

Please take the few minutes to complete the survey (it is in several languages) and then send the link to the survey to your colleagues. This can be through your professional organizations, your hospitals/universities/workplaces or to colleagues. The more responses are received, the better we will be able to identify the issues that need to be addressed.

Thank you for your help.
