Health impact of psychosocial hazards at work: an overview
This review report focuses on the stress and health outcomes which arise from exposure to psychosocial risks. It contains articles on investigations of general health outcomes or risk factors as well as investigations of disease specific outcomes for musculoskeletal disorders, mental ill-health and cardiovascular disease. Even though data are not available worldwide on prevalence of specific psychosocial risk exposures, estimates can be made on the basis of national and international surveillance data to monitor psychosocial risks.
This review sets the basis on which estimates of exposure to psychosocial risks may be carried out.
