Humans generally encounter more acute and chronic health hazards and safety risks in the workplace than in their living environment. Occupational health and safety research therefore will save lives and will result in a better understanding of our (work) environment. This section will publish articles on all aspects related to occupational health and safety ranging from exposure to chemical, biological and physical agents to psychosocial conditions and their’ associated health effects. Particularly, papers on the following domains will be considered: occupational medicine, occupational hygiene, occupational epidemiology, safety science, injury prevention, ergonomics, occupational nursing, health promotion, occupational health policy and regulation, toxicology, exposure assessment, risk assessment, health surveillance, exposure control, personal protective equipment, return to work, and research methodology.
While Occupational Health and Safety is mostly focused on field studies, laboratory experiments and evaluations of interventions and policies will also be welcome. The ultimate goal of this section is to prevent diseases and injuries in the workplace, to promote the health of all workers, and to advance the knowledge of health hazards and risks in the (working) environment.
