||The prevention of occupational psychosocial risks is now a legal requirement in Portuguese hospitals. Research efforts and scientific publications highlight the fact that psychosocial hazards are much higher in health care than in other sectors of activity, a situation that is particularly true for hospitals. The objective of this thesis is to define a theoretical framework for the prevention of occupational psychosocial hazards; it presents a model for the organization of prevention and the management of psychosocial hazards in hospitals.
