Dear Colleagues,

 

Industrial sectors and organizations are growing day by day, and with the emergence of Industry 5.0, it has become crucial to consider sustainable changes based on both human resources and smart technologies. In this context, the role of the workforce, whether white-collar or blue-collar, is critical. Worker health and safety, job satisfaction, and meeting the operators' needs are important factors that must be taken into consideration.

 

Therefore, industrial sector managers should consider job analysis for redesigning current tasks or developing new ones. Ergonomics is a multidisciplinary science that focuses on human beings, occupational health, and efficiency. It plays a critical role in job analysis, work station design, and task development. Job analysis helps employers and managers to obtain appropriate information about the job content and related requirements, which is also useful in choosing job seekers.

In this regard, Man-Machine analysis, job assessment, and macro-ergonomics are the main parts of job evaluation. All of these subjects are covered by ergonomics considerations and interventions.

 

We are interested in exploring the collective state-of-the-art subjects in the framework of job analysis, with a particular focus on ergonomics and human factors engineering, safety and occupational health, and proper strategies for job design. In this context, we welcome research articles and reviews that address these topics. We look forward to receiving your contributions in this area of study.
