Leading and Managing Occupational Health, Safety and Wellbeing of Distributed Workers

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


In this chapter, we explore the challenges presenting in ensuring safety, health and wellbeing of employees who are out of sight of their manager for some of their work time. We examine how to enhance safety, health and wellbeing of distributed workers by focusing on leadership provided by managers, the means put in place by the organization and the steps taken by the employees themselves. We provide recommendations for scholars, end-users and managers to help ensure the occupational safety, health and wellbeing for distributed workers.
