Introduction: Due to the prevalence of Covid-19 disease in the country, there is a possibility of infecting employees who provide services in different work environments. Our purpose in writing this review article is to assess and analyze studies on the nature of the disease, its causative agent, occupations at risk, and the prevention and control of Covid-19 in the workplace.
Materials and Methods: In this study, intending to investigate high-risk occupations and prevent and control Covid-19 disease in the workplace, Google Scholar, PubMed, Scopus databases from 2019 to 2020, and CDC, ACOEM, OSHA, CCHOS, WHO guidelines were assessed by thematic search method. Twenty-four articles and 12 instructions were selected and used in writing this article.
Results: Studies have shown that many occupations, including healthcare staff, public transport staff, customs and airport staff, waste collection and disposal workers, and bathhouse staff, are at risk for this disease.
Conclusion: To take effective action to control this emerging disease in the workplace and maintain the health of workers and the continuation of economic activities, first we must better understand this disease and its causative agent, and all components of society must have sufficient information about the nature of the disease, ways of transmitting the virus, and ways to prevent and control Covid-19 disease, this can be effective in reducing lost workdays, absenteeism and preventing the spread of the virus in the community.
