COVID-19 is an unprecedented public health emergency affecting every industry. As we wait to develop treatments and vaccines to protect individuals from COVID-19, we must develop strategies to protect workers in Canada’s vital industries. In the absence of any adaptation strategy, risk of infection will continue to threaten the health and safety of workers. This will cause wealth inequalities for Canada’s industries due to labor loss and place a severe strain on Canada’s health care system. Our project will create a physiological monitoring platform that will equip industry with the tools need to improve decision-making and oversight related to the health readiness of a worker in context of COVID-19.
