This article introduces the second series of articles in the Special Section on work organization and health. Empirical research has indicated that increased control - at both an individual and collective level - is a fundamental component of preventive psychosocial interventions aimed at ameliorating the impact of occupational stress-related disorders. However, practical intervention activities oriented toward enhancing levels of worker control have met structural obstacles at the level of the state, the occupational sector, and the workplace. The articles in this issue address these obstacles and suggest strategies for overcoming them from historical sociological, occupational health policy, and action research orientations.
