Special Issue Information
This Special Issue is an output of the WOS 2022 conference (WOS.net), an international network of decision makers, researchers and professionals responsible for the prevention of accidents and trauma in the workplace. The latest ﬁndings and best practices for different countries and sectors are discussed herein.
Focusing on Humans in an increasingly technological world, the two spheres that currently overlap in the workplaces are addressed: traditional occupational-related issues, such as accident prevention and forensics, company-based safety management systems, education, training and lifelong learning, high-risk activities, injury prevention by campaigns and methods, and approaches to labor inspection; emerging topics and future trends being brought by the most recent industrial revolution, including Safety II, digitalization and new human-machine relationships. The contemporary conjuncture of society is expressed in the workplace, which is why digital work management and the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic are also included as a topic of this Special Issue.
