NIOSH Launches Survey on Workplace Testing for COVID-19

A national, anonymous survey being conducted by NIOSH is intended to identify barriers and facilitators of COVID-19 testing in U.S. workplaces. Employers are encouraged to participate in the survey, which will be open until Sept. 15. The survey is part of a larger NIOSH study about COVID-19 testing among U.S. businesses. According to the agency, the data collected will be used to identify approaches and strategies that all employers can use to implement COVID-19 testing. NIOSH estimates that the survey will take less than 20 minutes to complete. The survey includes questions about how organizations have been handling the COVID-19 pandemic and how they test their workforces as well as questions about challenges related to COVID-19 testing of workers.

Questions about the survey should be directed to the study’s principal investigator, Paul Schulte, PhD, via email. Additional information about how the survey data will be collected and stored is available on the survey webpage.
