Special Issue "Occupational Health"
A special issue of International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (ISSN 1660-4601).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 July 2013)
Health hazards in the workplace are as old as work itself, but at the same time they continue to change and evolve with the changing nature of work and the changing composition of the workforce. Many hazardous industries and jobs have been "exported" from developed to developing countries. This journal issue will explore new work environments and new hazards in the workplace. Workplace hazards caused by behavioral changes both in and outside the workplace will also be considered. Another major focus is the changing composition of the workforce. As the workforce ages in developed countries, consideration must be given to increased risks for the older worker. Many hazardous jobs are done by immigrant workers, who suffer increased risks of injury and illness from their precarious work status. Finally, reduction of occupational injuries and illnesses requires not only etiologic studies but effective interventions. Research on effective interventions to decrease workplace hazards is an area receiving increased attention.
