QUESTIONNAIRES FOR PSYCHOSOCIAL RISK ASSESSMENT AT WORK. The aim of this review is to describe the state of the art of the assessment of psychosocial risk at work in Italy. Questionnaires for such assessment can be divided into four broad categories: a) those aimed at identifying work-related stress factors and assessing work organization; b) those that investigate the individual’s perception of stress; c) those assessing mediating factors; and d) those that measure the effects of stress. For a complete picture of psychosocial risk at work, all these factors should be taken into account. However, lack of time and resources available for the practice of occupational medicine imposes the choice of simple questionnaires that are quick and easy to administer. A vast range of options is available in the literature. This gives rise to the need for multicenter trials to be set up and for research methods to be standardized. It is strongly recommended to use questionnaires published in the international literature which have a validated Italian version with adequate psychometric validity index and standardized methods of administration.
