PPE Survey
This survey is intended for healthcare workers in New Zealand.

There have been widespread reports from healthcare workers with issues getting access to personal protective equipment (PPE) during the COVID-19 pandemic. This includes lack of training and education, lack of preparation, lack of access to PPE (such as PPE being locked away), or lack of sufficient PPE.

There have also been reports of staff being threatened with disciplinary action for speaking out on this issue. At the press briefing on 22/4/20, PM Jacinda Ardern stated that this is "unacceptable".

"It's not acceptable ever to threaten their employment over that," Jacinda Ardern says. "If I were to find where that was happening, there will be follow-up on that. That is not okay."

Health Sector Workers Aotearoa are trying to find out how widespread this is. If you are a healthcare worker in New Zealand please take this survey. The results will help us to advocate for the safety of healthcare workers during the COVID-19 pandemic. We will collect this data with an eye towards sharing it with journalists and the media. All responses are anonymous.
