NHS Health Scotland is a new special health board bringing together the Public Health Institute of Scotland (PHIS) and the Health Education Board for Scotland (HEBS).
The Work Positive Risk Assessment Questionnaire is a self-completion questionnaire for employees. It is designed for use within small and medium sized individual businesses, to provide managers with a measure of employee stress. The measure provides a score on a range of salient structural and work organizational influences with potential to contribute to workplace stress. The questions are designed to address aspects such as 'job design' and 'workload'. The tool is intended to be used as "stage two" within the greater Work Positive package, which was designed to operate as a voluntary scheme for small and medium sized enterprises to assist managers in assessing and controlling risks associated with work-related stress.
1 open-ended question and 67 statements (agree/disagree) that cover various aspects of organizational culture.
|Intended Sectors/Sizes of Workplaces||
Small and medium sized workplaces. This is based on the premise that smaller organizations are less likely to have in-house experience or knowledge suitable for dealing with stress control and management.
All employees are encouraged to complete the survey.
