The OHSS aims to design and implement COVID-19 surveillance digital platforms and/or tap into existing platforms (e.g. those already used by employers) to collect symptom screening, testing, contact tracing, vulnerability data and return to work data through a surveillance system for all workers in the private and public sector. The operational requirements of the OHSS have also been subjected to scrutiny to ensure that it upholds all aspects – in terms of confidentiality and ethical standards – as determined by South African Regulations in relation to COVID-19.Read the first OHSS report here.
