COVID19 outbreaks in workplace settings: understanding and preventing superspreading (SFI)

In June 2022 Dr Carla Perrotta and Dr Conor Buggy completed their SFI COVID19 Rapid Research Scheme funded project focusing on the impact COVID19 was having on Irish workplaces.
With a focus on the potential impacts of superspreading events and how Irish OSH workers managed as the early stages of the pandemic unfolded their research provides insight into how Irelands workers managed to stay safe and learn through lockdowns and restrictions.
Attached are the main reports ( Work Package 1 Report and Work Package 2 Report) from the project alongside links to publications arising from the project.
