Abstract
In developed countries, changes in the nature of work and the workforce may necessitate recalibrating the vision of occupational safety and health (OSH) researchers, practitioners, and policymakers to increase the focus on the most important issues. New methods of organizing the workplace, extensive labor contracting, expansion of service and knowledge sectors, increase in small business, aging and immigrant workers, and the continued existence of traditional hazards in high-risk sectors such as construction, mining, agriculture, health care, and transportation support the need to address (1) broader consideration of the role and impact of work, (2) relationship between work and psychological dysfunction, (3) increased surveillance basis for research and intervention, (4) overcoming barriers to the conduct and use of epidemiologic research, (5) information and knowledge transfer and application, (6) economic issues in prevention, and (7) the global interconnectedness of OSH. These issues are offered to spur thinking as new national research agendas for OSH are considered for developed countries.
