||Monitoring psychosocial stress at work: Development of the psychosocial working conditions questionnaire
||2000, Special issue, p.59-70. Illus. 21 ref.
||Many studies on the impact of psychosocial working conditions on health prove that psychosocial stress at work is an important risk factor for workers' health and should be constantly monitored as are other work hazards. The paper presents a newly-developed approach for stress monitoring, the Psychosocial Working Conditions Questionnaire (PWC). It consists of 3 main scales, Job Demands, Job Control and Social Support, and 2 additional scales adapted from the Occupational Stress Questionnaire, Well-Being and Desired Changes. The study of 8 occupational groups (bank and insurance specialists, medical personnel, construction workers, shop assistants, public administration workers, computer scientists, public transport drivers and teachers) indicates that PWC has satisfactory psychometric parameters.
