Over the last years, we have observed some changes in the occupational exposure to chemical agents that have opened the way to new challenges in exposure assessment. In most developed countries, we have seen a decrease of the exposure levels for several chemicals, but, on the other hand, we had to face the exposure assessment of new and emerging chemical agents being used in new technologies and materials (nanotechnologies and nanomaterials, ultrafine particles, rare hard metals, and so on). This has resulted in the development of new reliable sampling and analytical methods to assess the exposure of workers.
Moreover, we helped investigate occupational diseases connected with old hazards but in non-traditional exposure scenarios.
This Special Issue aims to make known recent research addressing these topics that can effectively improve occupational exposure assessments. All original contributions and on-field studies are welcome to be included in this Special Issue.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2300 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
