Psychological occupational health: from the definition of the problem to the solutions


The growing number of injuries due to stress, burnout or other psychological factors demonstrates the great increase in occupational mental health problems in the last few years, which are the primary cause of the increase in absenteeism. For organizations, the lack of a strategic risk-prevention process is a major obstacle in this important issue. The researcher and his team developed a three-step process: diagnosis, intervention and evaluation, with each one being the subject of a pamphlet of approximately twenty pages. The three pamphlets make up a kit, a real prevention tool that organizations can use autonomously to attempt to prevent occupational stress and the many problems that it produces.
