Work-related psychosocial risks include professional risks that affect both the mental and physical health of workers and have an impact on the smooth running, performance and safety of companies.
The origin of these risks can be found in the organisation of the work, the content of the work, working conditions, living conditions at work and interpersonal relations at work.
Stress, moral harassment, burnout, suicide, alcohol and drug abuse are the best-known manifestations of these psychosocial risks, whose appearance may result in significant costs to the workers, the company and the community in general.
The employer is required to take the necessary measures to prevent psychosocial risks at work, prevent any harm that results from these risks or limit this harm.
