ARCE JULIO, Raquel et al. Relationship between work-related stress and psychosocial risk factors in the workplace of disability center employees working for a disability center located in Atlántico, Colombia. Rev Asoc Esp Espec Med Trab [online]. 2020, vol.29, n.1, pp.42-56.  Epub 01-Jun-2020. ISSN 1132-6255.

Objectives:

The study examined the relationship between work-related stress and psychosocial risk factors in the workplace of disability center employees working for a disability center located in Atlántico, Colombia.

Material and methods:

The correlational descriptive study examined 35 employees working for a disability center. The employees were given a questionnaire produced by The Social Protection Ministry of Colombia and Javeriana University which measured work-related psychosocial risk factors and the employees’ level of work stress.

Results:

Among the employee sample studied, 31.4% of the workers indicated a high level of work stress. We found a positive relationship between work-related psychosocial risk factors and the employees’ level of work stress.

Conclusion:

We concluded that a high level of work-related psychosocial risk factors increases work stress in disability center employees. We recommend the intervention of the Occupational Health Department to help reduce work-related psychosocial risk factors to reduce disability center employees’ level of work-related stress.
