CFP for Construction Innovation: Health and well-being in construction
Construction Innovation is inviting interested parties to submit an abstract for their upcoming issue titled "Health and well-being in construction". The issue aims to highlight the significant impact of the work environment on workers' health and well-being.
This special issue encourages interested parties to engage in research around the health and well-being of construction workers and professionals. It seeks to draw attention to the role health and well-being play in an unpredictable, physically demanding and stressful work environment, and how different stakeholders can collaborate to promote health and well-being in construction.
Suggested topics include, but are not limited to:
- Innovations in the management of health (physical or psychological or both) and well-being in the construction industry
- Prevention-through-Design (PtD) with a focus on health hazards
- Critical reviews of health and well-being policies/strategies/measures at the levels of industry, organisation, and project
- Applications of emerging technologies and management strategies to improve health and well-being in construction (e.g., health monitoring technologies, mental health interventions)
- Implications of construction 4.0 and emerging technologies for health and well-being (e.g., technostress, poor work-life balance) in construction
- Health and well-being of minority groups such as women, apprentices, and migrant construction workers and professionals
- Health and well-being of younger, aging, and older workers
- Case studies on health and well-being promotion programs in construction
- Factors influencing the health and well-being of construction workers and professionals (this may include the role of education and early habits impact unhealthy perspectives on work-life balance)
