In this special issue we invite research, review and conceptual papers covering different topics related to human factors and ergonomics, which may be included under the “umbrella” of the following subjects: safety management, ergonomics and physical environments, chemical and biological agents, and fire safety.
Original contributions including conceptual, empirical and case studies, as well as technical reports and reviews addressing and/or relating to any of the subject coverage areas, are welcome from authors.
