Stressors and Injury for Construction Workers

This questionnaire consists of 47 items that elicit information on the respondent's job-task demands, organizational stressors that they may encounter, and their exposure to, or protection from, work-related stressors. It also collates information on psychological and physical symptoms, injuries, and near-miss incidents. It is founded on a stress-injury model and has been used to test whether work stressors could be related, either directly or indirectly through the mediating effects of physical or psychological symptoms/strain, to self-reported injuries or near miss incidents.
