||Occupational safety and health legislation requires that employers regularly conduct risk assessments to identify potential hazards to employees' health at the workplace. The idea of risk assessment for physical hazards is well-established. More recently, attention has focused on the assessment of risk from psychosocial hazards, and methods have been developed from research to assess the prevalence of workplace stressors. Although much research has been done on stress, there existed no systematic overview of the different types of stressor measures currently available, nor was there any consistently-recorded information about their relative merits. This report consists of a critical review of published literature, identifying a wide range of commonly used methods, assessing the research evidence available and providing an overview of their relative strengths. Conclusions are drawn about the state of knowledge in this area and issues for practice and research.
