Workplace interventions are directed at promoting or improving health and safety in the workplace. It may include safety interventions aiming at avoiding accidents as well as measures aiming at worker health. The vast majority of the research today is focused on identifying risk factors in the work environment related to an increased risk of ill health or accidents. Less research has been conducted on developing and evaluating the effectiveness of interventions. An important aspect of measures in the workplace is to include financial analysis with regards to cost/benefit. Recent research has shown that effective interventions at the workplace improve worker health as well as the company’s profitability.
There are several methodological challenges when conducting intervention studies at workplaces, with everyday activities in the workplace focusing on producing goods or services. The golden standard of research methodology with randomized controlled designs may not be feasible to use in these cases; nevertheless, there are high quality alternatives with other controlled designs.
This Special Issue offers an opportunity to publish high quality multidisciplinary research and reviews that focus on workplace interventions directed at worker health and safety. We especially invite intervention studies which apply controlled designs. Researchers who have conducted research on this topic are invited to submit manuscripts for consideration for this Special Issue in IJERPH.
