Pandemics and other crises can trigger many psychosocial risks that affect worker health and well-being. The prolonged impact of the COVID-19 pandemic exposed the psychological stress that workers may experience in these intense situations. As OSH professionals, we identify hazards and assess work-related risks, then develop and implement effective controls.
