Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Occupational and environmental medicine plays a critical role in safeguarding the health and well-being of workers and communities. This proposed Special Issue aims to highlight the practical applications of scientific research in addressing challenges related to occupational health and environmental exposures.

The issue will feature a diverse range of topics, including novel approaches to hazard assessment, emerging environmental health risks, technological innovations for safety and health, interventions in challenging work environments, strategies for chronic disease prevention, and the intersection of policy and practice.

The contributions to this Special Issue will offer insights into real-world solutions, bridging the gap between scientific knowledge and its implementation in occupational and environmental settings. Through collaborative efforts, we aim to advance the field and promote healthier, safer workplaces and communities worldwide.

The proposed topics for this Special Issue include, but are not limited to, the following: 

  • Novel approaches to occupational hazard assessment;
  • Emerging environmental health risks in the workplace;
  • Technological innovations for occupational safety and health;
  • Occupational health interventions in challenging work environments;
  • Environmental exposures and chronic disease prevention;
  • Occupational health policy and regulation: bridging science and practice.
