Video: COVID-19 is an occupational disease

BWI, together with UNI and PSI, is happy to have extended its help and support to the ASEAN Services Employees Trade Union Council (ASETUC) in preparing this campaign video on the need to classify COVID-19 as an occupational disease.

It's time that we declare COVID-19 an occupational disease. Such a classification will provide workers additional protection against the pandemic and make our workplaces safer and healthier. Workers who contract the virus while at work will be justly compensated and workplaces can implement more preventive measures based on the generation of national statistical analyses from the occupational disease situation of different countries.
