 Poor Psychosocial Environment at Work Linked to Employee's Heart Problem Risk

A new study from the University of Gothenburg shows that employees experience highly demanding requirements if they are in a poor psychosocially work environment and therefore, they are likelier to suffer from heart problems.

The study demonstrated that employees working in psychosocially poor work environment have little ability to control their work or not feel sufficiently appreciated for the contributions they make.

Scientists say that, men who do not have heart problems but who experience poor psychosocial work conditions often have warning signs for coronary artery disease, such as high blood pressure and high cholesterol values. Mia Soderberg, lead researcher, can also draw the conclusion that these men more often change jobs, and points out here a difference between women and men.

"The labor market is no longer dominated by industry, but work instead deals more and more with knowledge processes and contact with other people. In work-related illness, we have also seen a shift from a focus on physical risk factors to a greater need to examine psychosocial factors," Mia Soderberg said.
