BMC Public Health is calling for submissions to our Collection on Occupational cancer.
Occupational cancer remains a critical public health concern, affecting individuals across diverse professions and industries. It arises from exposures to various carcinogens in the workplace, presenting a substantial burden on global health. The repercussions of asbestos, benzene, formaldehyde, and other occupational hazards underscore the urgent need for targeted research and evidence-based interventions. The journal invites contributions to a new Collection focused on occupational cancer, where we seek to explore the various facets of this important topic.
This Collection welcomes research and discourse on occupational cancer, shedding light on the intersections of public health, workplace environments, and individual well-being. We are calling for submissions that are addressing, but are not limited to, the following key areas:
- Occupational carcinogenic exposures: investigate and analyze the diverse exposures leading to cancer in occupational settings, identify emerging risks and potential preventive measures to mitigate exposure
- Asbestos exposure: explore the ongoing impact of asbestos exposure on occupational health, examine strategies for early detection, intervention, and management of asbestos-related diseases
- Benzene exposure: assess the occupational health implications of benzene exposure, propose innovative approaches for reducing benzene-related risks in the workplace
- Formaldehyde exposure: investigate the health effects of formaldehyde exposure in various occupational contexts, highlight preventive measures and policies to minimize formaldehyde-related health risks
- Work-related cancer: explore the broader landscape of work-related cancer, encompassing diverse occupations and industries, identify commonalities and differences in risk factors, prevention strategies
- Public health implications: analyze the societal impact of occupational cancer on public health, propose evidence-based interventions and policies to reduce the burden of work-related cancers
This Collection supports and amplifies research related to SDG 3: Good Health & Well-Being and SDG 8: Decent Work and Economic Growth.
