  • Abstract

    So far, there are no questionnaires for mental health risk assessment that satisfactorily meet the provisions of the Work Act on Occupational Safety and Health and the requirements of DIN EN ISO 10075-3. The aim of the wave 1 and 2 surveys was therefore to develop a reliable and valid questionnaire for measuring mental health at workplace, the Munich Employee Health Questionnaire (MEHQ). To validate the MEHQ, a longitudinal design (wave 3) was used to test, if stress indicators (=predictors) can predict stress symptons, health status, turnover intention and days absent (=criteria) one year later. The survey was conducted online, with a total of 1523 employed persons participating. The process of questionnaire development and the results are presented in detail in Bettina Maria Zweck's dissertation (2017).
