This paper presents results recorded in a large ergonomic field study concerning psychosocial risk factors that could determine work related stress and effects on work behaviour and health state in a specific economic field in Romania: gas transport.
The study aimed to investigate the phenomena of mental load and work related stress factors in order to establish the occupational categories whose work conditions present specific and special aspects, according to Romanian legislation.
The study used a complex ergonomic methodology, and one of the main instruments used to identify and assess psychosocial factors was the Romanian version of The Copenhagen Psychosocial Questionnaire (COPSOQ).
Therefore, the stress factors which could affect the personnel health and safety state and the organizational performance were identified and assessed.
