The Collegium Ramazzini is an independent, international society comprised of 180 physicians and scientists from 35 countries. Its mission is to increase scientific knowledge of the environmental and occupational causes of disease and to transmit this knowledge to decision-makers, the media and the global public to prevent disease, promote health and save lives.
The Collegium Ramazzini has issued a Statement1 on principles and best practices to protect workers and workplaces from COVID-19 infection. Recognizing that in many low-income and middle-income countries implementation of these practices will prove challenging, the Collegium Ramazzini now calls attention to the urgent need for a much expanded global public health infrastructure to prevent and contain COVID-19 infection among workers in all countries of the world.
