psychosocial risk diagnosis : Anticipate social unrest and malaise at work

The Psychosocial Risk diagnosis is one of the major tools for managing stress in companies.
The Psychosocial Risk diagnosis identifies, qualifies and tracks the psychosocial risks of which stress is one component. It ultimately makes it possible to prevent absenteeism and reduce medical costs linked to the risks relating to the job held.


The Psychosocial Risk diagnosis is a prevention and crisis management tool which aims to identify situations of unease or those which may be detrimental to employees’ mental health. The impact of stress on the health of employees represents 25% of occupational diseases, not to mention the loss of efficiency at work. This represents an internal cost and consequences on the organization of your business that may be significant. Our firm ProEvolution supports your company in its approach to the Physico-Social Risk diagnosis with "Psychologist Career Transition " experts.

How are psychosocial risks identified?

The psychosocial risk diagnosis will identify psychosocial risks in order to find appropriate solutions and actions. The risk assessment phase requires:
- being on the look-out for alerting behaviours: complaints, stress, risky behaviour, violence, conflicts, malaise ...
- monitoring the indicators and their changes: increased absenteeism, accidents at work, staff turnover, etc.
Thanks to this collection of information, the "Psychologist Career Transition" expert ProEvolution detects risks and will be able to determine the objectives and solutions to be implemented.
