Pandemic Experiences Survey from Occupational Health Clinics for Ontario Workers (OHCOW)

Posted in Health and Safety

You are invited to help gather important information about your experiences during this pandemic.

The survey was put together by the Occupational Health Clinics for Ontario Workers (OHCOW), with help from researchers at the Institute of Work & Health and Duke University in North Carolina. We also had input from a number of health and safety union staff representatives, who told us about the concerns and questions their members have.

During the pilot study, about half of the respondents took less than 20-25 minutes to complete the survey (the shortest time was 10 minutes).  Those who went through the survey slowly and provided thoughtful comments took up to half an hour.

If you feel uncomfortable answering a question, skip it. All the information collected in this survey is confidential. Only the researchers directly involved in this project will see all the answers. The team will not keep any information that could identify you or others. All the data we collect will be stored on a secure server.

We intend to use the data collected for research and to share with research organizations. The data, analysis and related information may be used in presentations, websites, and union, trade, and academic publications.
