Inquiry about your health and wellbeing in the workplace

First of all, thank you for taking the time to participate in this international survey!

The Education and Solidarity Network undertakes projects centered on the promotion of health and education around the world. This survey focuses on the occupational health (health at the workplace) of education professionals in different countries. Your input will help us develop a keener understanding of their working conditions across borders and cultures. We hope to collect as many replies as possible from professionals still active in education. 

Taking this survey will take no more than 15 to 20 minutes of your time. We guarantee the confidential and anonymous nature of all information submitted as part of the survey. To ensure that, please fulfill this questionnaire in one setting. The Education and Solidarity Network is a non-profit NGO, and your answers will not be used in the pursuit of any commercial motive.
