Workplace health and wellbeing is a fundamental aspect of health equity and social inequalities. Work-related health inequities are common in working populations and represent an increasing concern for individual workers (e.g., discrimination, job stress, mental health, and chronic illness), organisations (e.g., absenteeism and presenteeism), compensation authorities (e.g., injury, illness, and sickness claims), and governments (e.g., disability payments and economy). This Special Issue of the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (IJERPH) focuses on the current state of knowledge regarding the links between work and health. We particularly welcome research working from critical paradigms and equity-focused approaches which pertain to social determinants of health and critical social theories (e.g., those examining race, sex/gender differences, aging in the workplace, disability/ability and ableism, and so forth). We invite new, original research papers, reviews, case reports, and conference papers to be submitted to this issue. Manuscripts that consider new approaches to interventions to prevent, treat, or improve outcomes pertaining to work and health are welcome, along with manuscripts that examine the impact of occupational factors, including risk and protective factors of wellbeing, and those that deal with workplace health protection and promotion, injury/illness prevention, and workplace screening practices and interventions. Experimental, cross-sectional, and longitudinal explorative studies of mental health and wellbeing within occupational settings are also welcome.
