1. PANDEMIC AND POST-PANDEMIC CHALLENGES
2020 will be remembered as the year of the worldwide pandemic that has shaken the world of work. Epidemiologists insist that this will be a more common issue in the future, so work places must be prepared for it. What are we learning and what have we learned from this crisis? In this section, PEROSH researchers are invited to present their own experience on all those fields affected, directly or indirectly, by this threat: Working conditions, Teleworking, Psychosocial impact, Health Management, PPE’s, Preventive measures, and many others related to the topic.
2. BUILDING BRIDGES ACROSS OSH BOUNDARIES
Today, OSH borders are drawn by blurred lines. The limits of OSH field research have been enlarged towards other areas both in research and in practice, involving necessarily a solid cooperation. Such as the Human capital domain, technological developments, Industrial regulations, economic impact, commerce & product regulations, traffic and mobility issues, pharmacy issues and regulations, just to mention some of them, show that OSH activities and research are closely related to other experts and activities outside the pure “OSH-Labour” world. In this section, PEROSH researchers are invited to present their own experience on projects where the tight cooperation and full understanding of other fields is needed: Industry, Education, Health, Social Services, Industry, etc.
Globalization and the virtual communication in the (post) pandemic world also shortens geographic distances. Therefore, research in collaboration with other countries outside the EU is also welcomed to be presented.
