The increasing importance of conducting a risk assessment of hazardous substances in the efficient prevention and management of occupational diseases is due to the scientific basis of setting standards. Risk assessment can provide comprehensive and quantitative information on the effects of exposure to hazardous substances in the workplace on the human body, thereby contributing to the acquisition of trust between workers, employers, and governments and providing reasonable regulatory standards to establish engineering and administrative management goals. Risk assessment entails, in chronological order, the identification of hazardous substances, hazard assessment, exposure assessment, risk characterization, and risk management. Risk assessment is possible for the various harmful factors that may occur in occupational health and safety, and this will be the focus of this Special Issue.
