||New evaluation of psychosocial hazards
||Una nueva evaluación de riesgos psicosociales [in Spanish]|
||Jan.-Feb. 2007, Vol.53, No.311, p.36-44. Illus. 14 ref.
||This article presents a new approach developed by the Spanish Ergonomics Institute of the MAPFRE Foundation for evaluating psychosocial hazards. Following a definition of the concept of psychosocial hazards in occupational settings and a presentation of traditional evaluation methods, the article goes on to present the new approach which involves developing specialized computer-based tools for various sectors that are particularly concerned by psychosocial hazards (teaching, health care, services and administration, call centres). The objective of this approach, which relies on questionnaires and reference lists, is to help occupational safety and health specialists evaluate psychosocial hazards within the enterprise.
