We are witnessing what is arguably one of the most sudden and fast-paced disruptions to work and jobs in modern history. While these disruptions have significantly altered and interrupted normal work activities with little advanced warning, they have also provided unparalleled opportunity for innovation and new work arrangements that have resulted in the potential for increased productivity and enhanced worker well-being.
These disruptions have also fundamentally impacted the practice of occupational safety and health (OSH) around the world. Existing OSH paradigms have been challenged to respond to the effects these sudden disruptions have had for work and working people.
This special issue is devoted to the exploration of the future of work and occupational safety and health. This future will continue to be influenced by the lingering impacts of a global pandemic, and the psychosocial, political, and economic environments in which work occurs around the world.
Authors are invited to submit original manuscripts that help elucidate the challenges and opportunities the future of work will bring to the practice of OSH. Consideration of OSH solutions to evolving changes in work arrangements, employment patterns, workforce availability, workplace hazards and risks, and workplace regulation are encouraged.
