Since the furthest reaches of human history, human beings have had to carry out a series of activities for their survival, many of them in the presence of significant risks to their safety and health. The evolution of work has seen the reduction of a large number of risks in the workplace and the appearance of new and emerging risks, which must be identified, evaluated, and controlled.
The health effects caused by occupational exposure are a cause for concern throughout the world, so it is important to analyze the relationships between work and health, identifying the risk factors that may cause disorders or damage to work health.
The study of the safety conditions and use of individual protective equipment (IPE), the exposure to biological and chemical agents chemical agents, as well as the repetitiveness and intensity of the tasks to be carried out (effort and postural risk, mental health, etc.), in order to achieve optimal worker welfare, are current issues and are of great interest at the public and occupational health levels. Studying the impacts of these risk factors could lead to a better understanding of the adverse effects on the health of the population as well as their medium and long term consequences.
We invite colleagues from all health disciplines to submit articles using qualitative, quantitative, or mixed methods approaches. The submitted articles should focus on presenting new contributions on the health effects of occupational and environmental exposures and on interventions to improve the health of professionals.
We thank you for considering this invitation and are available for any inquiries.
