The HSE Work-Related Stress Scale

As part of our assessment methods we developed and tested the Work-Related Quality of Life scale (WRQoL scale) alongside the HSE's HSE Work-Related Stress scale.

The scale contains 35 items each evaluated on a 5 point Likert scale and produces seven factors which attempt to provide a wide ranging assessment of stress at work.

We have used the HSE stress scale alongside our other scales since 2005 and have norm group data for comparing many occupational groups including a general population group, a primary education group, a national charity group, a University general staff group and a University union member group.
