Too sick or not too sick?: The importance of stress and satisfaction with supervisor support on the prevalence of sickness presenteeism
In a sample of 3,274 full-time Belgian workers, this article found that 62% of workers went to work while being sick (sickness presenteeism) at least once over the past 12 months. Of all workers who did not show sickness presenteeism themselves, another 6 out of 10 saw or heard about sickness presenteeism in their own organization. This turns sickness presenteeism into an important physical and mental health risk, demanding new policy measures from organizational and governmental decision makers. Women were more likely to report sickness presenteeism than men and junior workers were more prone...
Une étude sociologique de la CFE-CGC pointe les effets délétères des pratiques managériales
La recherche réalisée par le sociologue Eric Roussel ouvre des pistes nouvelles d'analyse, de compréhension et de réflexions sur les risques psychosociaux des pratiques managériales. Cette recherche très poussée a porté exclusivement sur une population de cadres. L'auteur s'est intéressé aux conséquences des dissonances existant entre ce qu'il est demandé aux cadres de faire et ce qu'ils jugeraient bon de devoir faire. Le projet tente d'établir une typologie des effets identifiés...
Belgique. Une recherche sur le bien-être au travail dans les centres d'appels

Le rapport final identifie 7 grandes contraintes s'appliquant sur les opérateurs, et propose pour chacune des pistes d'action. Ces recommandations sont organisées en fonction des principales...
A two-year follow-up study of risk of depression according to work-unit measures of psychological demands and decision latitude
Objectives: The aim of this study was to examine if high psychological demands and low decision latitude at work increase the risk of depression. Methods : In 2007, 4237 non-depressed Danish public employees within 378 different work units were enrolled in the study. Mean levels of psychological demands and decision latitude were computed for each work unit to obtain exposure measures that were robust to reporting bias. In 2009, 3046 (72%) participated at follow-up, and those reporting high levels of depressive, burnout or stress symptoms went through a psychiatric interview by which 58 cases of...
Risk factors for work-related injuries among university student employees
This study identified contributing risk factors in the occurrence of work-related injuries among university students employed at a single university. Four hundred seventy-six student employees completed the survey in March 2010. The majority of respondents were female (66%) and the average age of all respondents was 20.7 yr. A pre-validated survey instrument was taken from the Youth Employment and School Study (YESS) and contained scales for the risk factors of interest. Results show significant differences in the amount of work-school conflict, boredom, workplace hazards, and workload between...
The influence of supervisor leadership practices and perceived group safety climate on employee safety performance
The current study investigates the influence of the leadership practices of first-line supervisors on the safety compliance and safety participation of the employees who work for them. Contingent reward and transformational leadership are examined under conditions of positive and non-positive group safety climate in both the manufacturing and constructions sectors. Using moderated regression models (Aguinis, 2004) results indicate that greater levels of transformational and contingent reward leadership are both associated with greater levels of safety compliance and safety participation behavior...
Supervisor vs. employee safety perceptions and association with future injury in US limited-service restaurant workers
OBJECTIVES: Many studies have found management commitment to safety to be an important construct of safety climate. This study examined the association between supervisor and employee (shared and individual) perceptions of management commitment to safety and the rate of future injuries in limited-service restaurant workers. METHODS: A total of 453 participants (34 supervisors/managers and 419 employees) from 34 limited-service restaurants participated in a prospective cohort study. Employees' and managers' perceptions of management commitment to safety and demographic variables were collected...
British Columbia Workplace Safety Leadership Development
In the absence of regular support from leaders, unsafe workplace environments and processes can develop. Workplace safety leadership development is about enhancing the capacity of individual leaders and ensuring that there is a regular flow of safety information to them. This project builds on that approach, by focusing on how safety climate can be measured in workplaces, so that the information can be used to enlighten leaders on the messages they send and to develop leadership practices and policies to improve safety.
