Deep dive with an electricity generating company: qualitative insights from site-based workers.
This study forms part of the wider PROTECT National Core Study on COVID-19 transmission, and sought to explore COVID-19 transmission within the nuclear energy company, EDF.
The focus of the study, led by theme 3 researchers of the PROTECT NCS, was to explore worker’s perceptions of EDFs response to the pandemic. The study findings demonstrated that a wide range of mitigation measures were implemented by EDF to control the transmission of COVID-19 in the workplace.
The mitigations received mixed responses from workers. Additional findings related to: perceived prioritisation of COVID-19 over general safety; communication and support; inconsistencies and local level differences; speed of response/change; working from home; mental health challenges; behavioural factors and COVID-19 outside of the workplace.
