||The objectives of the study were to evaluate occupational stress diagnosis practices in Belgian companies, and to identify factors that stimulate or block the implementation of stress management interventions at the workplace. A survey was used to collect data about work stress diagnosis practices. The first objective was explored through open questions about stress diagnosis and intervention. The second objective was achieved using a specific questionnaire designed on the basis of scientific literature. The sample included 180 Belgian companies from different sectors of activity, ranging in size from 20 to more than 10,000 workers. Only one out of six companies had implemented a stress diagnosis. Among those who had done so, only one out of two had implemented actions, and only one out of four had moved onto an evaluation stage. Other findings are discussed.
