HENRY, María Laura. Labour process and occupational health in the current productive scenario: The increasing incidence of psychosocial risks at work. Rev. Cien. Soc. [online]. 2019, vol.32, n.44, pp.171-196.  Epub June 01, 2019. ISSN 0797-5538.

The productive processes impose a series of demands on workers so that they provide their best effort and comply with the goals set by the organization that employs them. Under these conditions, workers are exposed to numerous risks and to processes of wear down that change historically, depending on the existing production patterns. The objective of this article is to examine the growing incidence of a new class of risks, called psychosocial risks at work, and how they relate to the current regime of capitalist accumulation. In order to illustrate these issues, we will review two researches carried out in Argentina, which allow visualizing the relations between the way labour process is organized and the risks and diseases that affect workers.

Keywords : psychosocial risks; services; occupational health; labour process.
