Collection of Occupation and Industry Information

The COVID-19 pandemic has demonstrated that surveillance systems of emergent diseases and other disease conditions need to include occupation and industry information to protect workers, prioritize public health strategies, and mitigate transmission in the workplace. A national effort has been initiated to help expand currently available data sources to collect workplace information. Based on this national effort, the NJDOH Occupational Health Surveillance Unit has worked to expand NJ sources of data to capture workplace information and bridge the current gap of putting data into action.

As a part of this effort, a short training video was developed for staff conducting case follow-up to help improve their collection of industry and occupation data, and is available here:
