For the practical purposes of structuring and managing abstracts/articles, the following main groupings are considered:
1. Prevention and Emergency Management
2. Safety at Work (multiple themes)
3. Industrial Hygiene and Occupational Health (multiple themes)
5. Risk Analysis and Assessment / Occupational Risk Management
6. OSH legislation and training; impact of legislation and/or impact of training
7. Psychosociology of Work
8. Occupational Health
However, in order to stimulate the presentation of less frequent topics and open perspectives for study and multifaceted research, studies and work in the following areas will be particularly valued:
■Human and Behavioral Factors
■Psycho-Social Risk Factors
■Emerging risks in new technologies (nanomaterials, new equipment, etc.)
■Management: Cost-Benefit Analysis of OSH; Productivity and Safety; Performance Indicators
■Age and Work, Gender and Work (risks involving workers considered most vulnerable)
■Occupational Safety in the face of "other aspects" of safety, e.g. food safety, operational safety (risks of activity), road safety, public safety, etc.
