A Special Issue on “Occupational Accidents and Risk Prevention” is being organized in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health. For detailed information on the journal, I refer you to https://www.mdpi.com/journal/ijerph.
Occupational accidents negatively affect not only to the worker injured, but also companies, governments, organizations, and society in general. A better understanding of such accidents (risks, causes, influence factors, personal variables, etc.) will help us to come up with more effective preventive measures and create safer workplaces.
In order to improve our understanding of the problem, this Special Issue on “Occupational accidents and risk prevention” aims to provide an overview of the most recent research related to occupational accidents. Original research articles are welcomed on but not limited to the following topics:
- Occupational risk assessment (hazard prevention and management);
- Accident analysis (causation, characterization of workers, accidents models, official records, etc.);
- New technology for the prevention of accidents (densors, IoT, big data, machine learning);
- Economic aspects of accidents (organizations, workers, insurance companies, etc.);
- Promotion of safety at the workplace (training for safety, procedures, signals, communication).
