The Impact of Covid-19 on the Workers’ Protection System: The Italian Perspective
The Covid-19 pandemic affected hard the workers’ protection systems not only from the point of view of the health of workers but also because of the closure of so many industrial and commercial enterprises. As a result, this social security sector was deeply involved in an unprecedented crisis.

Between the most difficult activities to carry on in order to have a quick and detailed knowledge of the new circumstances, was to give detailed regulations on how to protect the workers’ health at the work places and how to collect specific Covid-19 related data on the population of injured workers.
