The future of work is being shaped by rapid changes in the workplace, work, and workforce. Driven by advances in industry, this movement is marked by the accelerated pace of developments connecting people, places, and things. All these advances and developments have implications for worker safety, health, and well-being and require innovative and responsive occupational safety and health strategies. One such strategy is the Total Worker Health® framework, which recognizes work as a social determinant of health and prioritizes the principles of healthy work design to protect and advance worker safety, health, and well-being. Such efforts improve both our understanding of and capacity to address factors that present possible risks to today’s and tomorrow’s workforce, leading to empowered workers who thrive and contribute productively at work, at home, and across the U.S.A.
Papers addressing these topics are invited for this Special Issue of the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (IJERPH). We especially invite contributions that focus on future of work scenarios; their implications for worker safety, health, and well-being; and integrated occupational safety and health strategies to address them.
