Description

Within the project an assessment tool was developed (Instrument IDTS) for an expert forecast of psychosocial and health risks at the workplace which are related to the occupational stress and could consequently also contribute to absenteeism, presenteeism, burnout and fluctuation of the employees. The instrument IDTS was validated with reference questionnaires and evaluated in several different pilot work organisations by means of a comparative analysis of the adequacy of psychosocial support programmes for employees.
