Mapping and assessing psychosocial risk factors for individual- and organizational-level occupational stress intervention

Abstract

Various international organizations have raised awareness regarding psychosocial risks and work-related stress. From January 1, 2019, an amendment to the Estonian Occupational Health and Safety Act came into force, obliging the employer to ta ke measures to improve the psychosocial environment of the company in order to prevent health damage caused by psychosocial hazards. In current paper the focus is on: a) developing a mapping tool for psychosocial risk factors at work (Organizational Psychosocial Factors Indicator, OPSTI); b) delivering automatic feedback for the OPSTI test taker; c) evaluating workplace psychosocial risks at work by developing an organizational level psychosocial risk assessment system compliant with the requirements of European Agency for Safety and Health at Work (EU-OSHA); and d) developing different occupational stress interventions.
