Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health follows on from the previous Special Issue entitled Rising Risk Factors and Management of Disability in Working-Age Adults (https://www.mdpi.com/journal/ijerph/special_issues/working_risk_disability).

We are pleased to announce the continuation of this series with a Special Issue entitled “The Second Edition: Rising Risk Factors and Management of Disability in Working-Age Adults”. Workers in the healthcare sector demonstrate an increasing incidence of infectious, metabolic, and cardiovascular diseases, as well as on-the-job injuries. Accordingly, the average working-age mortality rates increased in the US after 2010. Therefore, it is clear that employees in the healthcare sector deserve special attention in terms of the prevention, care, and treatment of disabilities. The first aim of this Special issue is to offer an update on the rising risk factors for the health of healthcare workers. Secondly, we will face the timeless challenges related to the management of social disability in working-age adults. Although more research is needed to understand the causal mechanisms, we highlight the urgency of adequate policies, because the lack of efforts to address the several health risk factors and social disabilities among working-age adults threatens the future wellbeing of families and communities.
