Researcher access to confidential records adds to the vulnerability of workers who participate in workplace studies. Inappropriate release of identifiable private information could adversely affect a worker’s retention of a job, insurance or other employment related benefits. To avoid or minimize these risks, the study design must include adequate safeguards to protect the confidentiality of the information collected. A plan for the proper management of study data and records should clearly define:

  • Who will have access to the data.
  • If personal identifiers will be retained and used in the data analysis.
  • How the data will be collected and secured.
  • If the study results, if any, will be included in the employee’s personnel records.
  • All of the above
