Title Classification of methods for evaluating stress in the enterprise
Original title Classification des méthodes d'évaluation du stress en entreprise [in French]
Bibliographic information 2002, Vol.XXXIX, No.1, p.13-28. Illus. 50 ref.
Abstract A review of the main methods used in Belgium for evaluating stress at the place of work was carried out. Twenty-two methods were examined and compared from the standpoint of non-specialist users. For each method evaluated, technical data sheets were prepared containing a summary of the objectives of the method, the definition adopted for stress, the model on which it rests, the detailed description of the method, the interpretation of the results, the time necessary to apply it in the field and the validation as claimed by the authors. On the basis of the various criteria defined above, the methods were classified according to whether they were primarily "quantification" or "prevention" methods, and according to their level in the SOBANE prevention strategy (screening, observation, analysis and expertise). For each level, the method best corresponding to the SOBANE strategy was retained.
