WHAT IS COPSOQ?

 

Psychosocial risk assessment

An international instrument designed for the assessment and improvement of psychosocial conditions in workplaces. COPSOQ is designed as a tool for workplace psychosocial risk assessment and for organizational development. It is a generic tool, which can be used for all kind of jobs, in any industry and for workplaces of different sizes (private or public).

 

Multilingual

At this moment we offer the COPSOQ in Dutch and in English. Our aim is to expand the number of languages steadily. This will enable usage in companies with branches in different countries and in companies with employees that don’t speak the same language. We have a wide network and will implement a language on request.
We currently offer the COPSOQ in Dutch and English. Contact us if you would like to use it in another language.

 

More than a questionnaire

COPSOQ is designed as a tool for workplace psychosocial risk assessment and for organizational development. Participation involves both social and technical processes. From this perspective, COPSOQ works best when management workers’ representatives and staff work together, with the technical support of competent professionals when needed. That is why we will ask you to form an internal team that will ensure commitment from all employees. A survey with a low response rate is a waste of time.

 

Individual feedback and company report

The COPSOQ is designed to assess organizations and companies, but every employee will receive a personalized report directly after filling in the questionnaire. This immediate feedback works as an incentive to participate in the assessment.

 

 

Why COPSOQglobal?

 

If you want to use the COPSOQ, you can of course check whether there is a national team in your country. If you work internationally we advise you to be cautious. National versions will vary, which might become an issue if you want to compare results from branches or agencies in different countries. We use a Middle Plus version with 36 dimensions. Extra dimensions can be added on request.

 

After the assessment

The final report will help you to identify risk factors in your organization. Your own staff can start working on change, or you might want to hire local consultants. In some countries we can help you find experienced change managers or consultants.
