COVID-19 Work and Health Study

Client: Monash University

Monash University invites you to take part in an important research study about COVID-19, work and health.

Millions of Australians are losing work or having their workplace disrupted during the COVID-19 pandemic. We are conducting an important study about people’s work and health experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic. The results will be used to develop effective responses to COVID-19 as the situation develops.

Monash University has contracted the Social Research Centre to conduct the telephone interviews required for this survey. You may have received a phone call or SMS regarding this study.

The survey will take approximately 20 minutes to complete. Arrangements can be made for you to participate at any time that is convenient for you.

All information you provide will be treated in strict confidence. The results will only be used for research purposes and will not be disclosed to anyone other than our client (Monash University).

Monash University will write reports using all the responses collected in the study. You will not be able to be identified in any reports from the study.

A fully de-identified copy of the study data will be made available to other researchers via the Open Science Foundation.

The survey is entirely voluntary but your participation is important for Monash University to see how people’s work experiences and health change during and beyond the COVID-19 pandemic.

Any information you provide will be completely confidential and your answers will not be identified as individual responses. Responses are used for research purposes only and are treated in strict confidence. No other agency or department will have access to your details.
