Covid at Work Study (CAWS)- Exploring transmission within the food and drink processing industry
What is the extent of past cases of COVID-19, and case rates relative to the number of people employed, across the food sector? What are the associations between the incidence of new cases of COVID-19 and features of the workplace and workforce? What are the risk factors for COVID-19 infection in the sector, and what guidance can be provided to reduce the risk of transmission among workers? The project was initiated in October 2020 and concluded in April 2022.
