This week, Honeywell released the results of a comprehensive study on workers’ perceptions and feelings on the health and safety of their workplace. Conducted by Wakefield Research, the study surveyed 500 workers that typically work in buildings with 500 or more employees across the United States and was part of a global study in at total of four markets.
The findings show that a majority of the U.S. workforce (71%) does not feel completely safe working in their employer’s buildings. This number is even higher for those working remotely (82%), who are especially skeptical about the safety of work sites. Nearly three in 10 remote workers (29%) would look for a new job rather than return to a site that did not implement necessary safety measures.
