Occupational safety and health emphasizes hazard and risk prevention in workplaces by establishing a positive working culture and environment to ensure the safety, health and welfare of workers. Multidisciplinary fields are involved in occupational safety and health, for instance, human factors, ergonomics, technology, industrial and organizational psychology, and law.
Certain research issues are identified as important for enhancing the occupational safety and the health of workers, including, but not limited to, policy and system establishment, program formulation, participant and stakeholder consultation, education and training, ethical consideration and policy enforcement, to managing the risk and guarantees the well-being of workers. In particular, submissions on newly-emerging research areas, like human factors in safety and health, risk perception and measurements, health and safety of the aging workforce, etc., are welcome.
This Special Issue is open to any subject areas related to occupational safety and health. The listed keywords suggest just a few of the many possibilities. Please consult the Guest Editor for further information.Prof. Dr. Alan H. S. Chan
