NEW! NEHA Releases Second COVID-19 EH Workforce Needs Assessment Report

NEHA fielded a nationwide EH workforce needs assessment in response to COVID-19. The aim of the assessment was to collect primary data in support of efforts to assess EH workforce activities and identify needs in response to COVID-19.

The report highlights that EH practitioners, many of whom are employed at small local agencies, are actively supporting COVID-19 response and recovery. In addition to their customary responsibilities, their contributions are now felt in the safe reopening and restoration of the economy, emergency operations centers, and contact tracing and communication efforts. They have been tasked with new roles and responsibilities that sometimes place them at risk of harm from the disease. Many in the EH workforce also report being emotionally exhausted and understaffed. Read the full report.
