Abstract

In this editorial, we summarise the new processes that have been implemented in the WHO/ILO systematic reviews for assessing burden of disease from occupational environmental exposures; identify key innovations in conducting the systematic reviews; highlight their implications for future practice across and beyond the occupational and environmental health and safety domains; and draw out lessons for future estimation of burden of disease and other scenarios where scientific research is reviewed and synthesised to inform policy and practice.
