¿Cómo Evaluar los Riesgos Psicosociales en la Empresa? Metodologías, Oportunidades y Tendencias

ABSTRACT La Evaluación de Riesgos Psicosociales es una necesidad cada vez más sentida y demandada en las empresas, dentro de los procedimientos de evaluación de riesgos que exige la Ley de Prevención de Riesgos Laborales. En este trabajo se describen las características que debe reunir un procedimiento de evaluación de riesgos psicosociales para cumplir los estándares de calidad científica, metodológica y profesional que deben requerírsele. Entre ellas se cuentan el estar basado y desarrollado en el marco de la investigación científica internacional sobre el tema y verificar los estándares psicométricos de fiabilidad, validez, y control de sesgos.

    ABSTRACT: This paper starts from the realization that persistent problems remain in probabilistic safety assessments due to the difficulty to take into account collective and socal behavior in complex sociotechnical systems. An epistemological analysis of the foundations of human reliability analysis (HRA) leads to possible improvement issues of HRA, particularly to allow for the psychological aspects of human factors. Three sources of progress are briefly analyzed: quantitative assessment of the psychological climate inside a company; non-linear predictive model of the accident rate; analysis of the personnel's stress on off-shore platforms, using clinical inquiries, then an epidemiologic-type study.The paper concludes about the need for analysis of ‘positive’ human factors, not only focussed on human errors.

    ABSTRACT: Whatever the level in an organization, the management needs safety indicators to assist decision making on safety. As an indicator, PSA through PHRA takes account of the human reality in a limited way. In spite of the limitations of PSAs as a tool in assisting the processing of safety problems, three possible channels for development and progress are suggested: ‘internal’ improvement of PSAs, by enhancing data and human-behaviour models; extension of the classical applications of PSAs for the purpose of reflection and speculation, and for querying the potential influence of a certain number of factors concerning human behavior; the extension of PSAs themselves, by developing organizational indicators, particularly ‘safety climate’ indicators.
