Psychosocial
risks

All business areas and company functions are potentially affected by psychosocial risks (PSR).

They represent a threat to the health (physical and mental) of employees and the performance of companies.

Their prevention is part of the employer’s general obligation to prevent occupational risks.

Beyond this legal obligation, it is in the interest of each organization to integrate the right level of prevention of psychosocial risks into an ethical and sustainable performance dynamic.

Psychosocial risks (PSR): what are they exactly?

Under the PSR entity, we integrate stress, which is its most important manifestation, as well as situations of violence or even moral and sexual harassment.

The national interprofessional agreements reached between the social partners on stress (ANI July 2008) and harassment and violence at work (ANI March 2010), make it possible to rely on relatively consensual definitions.

Today, professional psychosocial factors are increasingly known and highlighted by abundant scientific literature, made accessible by the efforts, for example, of the ANACT, the INRS, or the General Directorate of Labor.

What are the different levels of psychosocial risk prevention (PSR)?

Three complementary levels of action are classically identified: primary, secondary and tertiary.

  • Primary preventionconsists of implementing actions to reduce risk factors within the company and reduce the likelihood of psychosocial risks appearing.
  • Secondary preventionconsists of providing employees with the means to better cope with psychosocial risk situations (stress, violence, harassment).
  • Tertiary prevention consistsof setting up psychological support and assistance measures in the event of a situation of ill-being.

Prevention measures must be adapted to the specific needs of each situation. The combination of the three levels of prevention makes it possible to adopt a global approach.
