The Canadian Journal of Administrative Sciences is pleased to announce a special issue on health and safety in organizations.  Understanding how employee health and occupational safety pervade organizational life and its appropriate inclusion in broader definitions of individual and organizational performance makes this topic of critical multidisciplinary interest.  We would like to encourage submissions on a number of topics across the administrative sciences.  Examples of topics might include but are not limited to:

  • Marketing organizational health and safety to employees, suppliers, vendors, customers, and the general public
  • Health and safety in multinational organizations – the challenges of enhancing organizational health and safety in marginalized countries
  • The structure and measurement of effective health and safety initiatives (e.g., organization and community partnerships)
  • Health and safety in vulnerable organizational sectors (e.g., health care) and under-represented working populations (e.g., migrant and contingent workers)
  • Ethical/political perspectives on health and safety in organizations
  • The role of information technology in promoting organizational health and safety 
  • How supply chain relationships are used to support workplace safety and health initiatives in organizations.
