In the health sector, the theme of work-related stress is a major issue, representing a significant risk factor on health-care providers which can also affect the quality of health services provided. It is therefore important to adopt a multidimensional evaluation system of work-related stress in order to integrate the results of the analysis of objective and subjective stress indicators. The adoption of a multidimensional validated tool as the one proposed by Inail, allows an integrated analysis of sentinel indicators, objective factors of context and content jointly to direct analysis of the subjective perception of workers through the analysis of the Management Standards developed by Health and Safety Executive. The comparison between three Healthcare Districts, three Mental Health Centers and Administrative Offices of an Healthcare Organization (652 workers involved) revealed the most critical areas which need urgent improvement intervention.
