||Instituto Nacional de Seguridad e Higiene en el Trabajo, c/Torrelaguna 73, 28027 Madrid, Spain, 2001. 77p. Illus. 51 ref.
||This booklet addresses the issue of autonomy and decision latitude of workers as stress-moderating factors, based on the principle according to which it is easier to adapt and reach a balanced relationship with one's environment if one has control. Following a presentation of several control models, it defines objective factors (control on demands or on the task) and subjective factors (personal perception of degree of control), as well as the concept of social support. Finally, various methods for evaluating the degree of autonomy of a job, as well as intervention possibilities are discussed.
