Our mission is to create a major open access resource to share and communicate high-quality, peer-reviewed research on the important role that Occupational Health and Safety plays on human health, particularly during the working life and at later stages of the life-course.
Within the Occupational Health and Safety section we intend to promote the advance of occupational health science through publishing high quality research that will contribute to the improvement of health and safety at work, as well as reducing the burden of disease related with occupational risk factors. Additionally, we aim to publish research that might support action at all levels (companies, regulatory, policy) for the prevention of diseases and injuries in the workplace and to promote the health of workers. Therefore, besides field studies, laboratory experiments and evaluations, research on interventions and policies will also be welcome. Also, the impact of changes in society, environment and economy in occupational exposures and the need for adaptation of occupational health interventions will be of interest.
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 hygiene, occupational medicine, occupational epidemiology, toxicology, exposure assessment, risk assessment, occupational health policy and regulation, safety science, injury prevention, ergonomics, occupational nursing, health promotion, exposure control, personal protective equipment, return to work, and research methodology.
