The workplace has always been the ideal setting for health promotion activities. The availability of health and safety services, which arrange periodic checks on workers, allows reaching a large number of people in a short time and involving them in health improvement actions that can potentially extend to the family and social sphere. In recent years, the marked and rapid aging of the workforce has highlighted the importance of health improvement, because only workers in excellent physical and psychological shape can remain productive until old age.
The prevention of traditional occupational risks is frequently associated with a growing effort to promote and improve health. A Special Issue of this journal back in 2018 collected very valuable contributions from many research groups, in a global perspective of total worker health.
In the past two years, the pandemic caused by the Sars-CoV-2 virus has severely tested occupational health and safety services, as well as healthcare in general. Today, even if the pandemic is certainly not over, new therapeutic possibilities and the use of vaccines make it possible to tackle this disease and push for a renewed commitment to health promotion, which also has the aim of putting workers in the best possible conditions for coping with disease. Papers addressing these topics are invited to this Special Issue, especially those combining a high academic standard with a practical focus on providing optimal health promotion activities in the workplace.
