According to the International Labor Organization, psychosocial risks represent a set of perceptions and experiences of the worker, defined as factors influencing the health and well-being of the individual and the group, arising from the individual’s psychology, structure and function of the organization from work. These factors are likely to influence health, performance and job satisfaction. They include social aspects, such as forms of interaction within groups; cultural aspects, such as traditional methods of conflict resolution; and psychological aspects such as attitudes, beliefs and personality traits.
Psychosocial factors are inherent to the conditions and organization of work and influence people’s health, both psychologically and physically.
