Summary/Abstract: Because of the increased health risk, psychosocial factors and their assessment methods are among the top research priorities for the health and safety at work. The purpose is to present a complex questionnaire with several sections (author’s work) for wide use by practitioners in the field of HSW. A questionnaire was developed to assess the psychosocial health risk at work, adapted and validated in many studies in different professional groups over the course of 20 years. The main modules are: independent factors – general load characteristics, psychosocial characteristics and stressors, and dependent outcomes (health complaints, job satisfaction) as well as suggestions for improvements to an employer. Illustrated are some research results and data processing by modules. The method has proven to be an economical and reliable tool to differentiate between different professions and jobs
