Abstract

2012 is the year of the European Campaign aimed at the sensitisation towards the topic of psychosocial risks at work, launched by SLIC (Committee of Senior Labour Inspectors) and supported by the European Commission together with Sweden, which is the promoting Member State . The increasing visibility of the topic at every level – from the national level to the EU, comparative and international ones – is one of the reasons that led the Reviews Lavoro e Diritto and Olympus to dedicate a monograph issue to the topic of psychosocial risks or, rather, in a broader and deeper sense, to the current significance of the risk at work through the comparative-legal analysis of psychosocial risks. The fact that the topic is given increasing scientific attention is also proved by the collaborations that have made this project possible. The volume of Lavoro e Diritto and the Working Paper, the latter to be issued at the same time with the essays in the original language and/or translated for their network dissemination, originate from the collaboration with the Comptrasec Department of the Bordeaux IV Montesquieu University, which coordinates a research programme funded by CNRS, entitled COMPARISK, supervised by Loïc Lerouge , joined by several researchers from the interested areas (Europe, Quebec, Japan). The solid base of scientific research on which the chosen topic relies, makes it clear that the initiative cannot be ascribed to mere reasons of scientific opportunism related to a topic that is objectively à la page. In fact, this monograph section was inspired by the need for a national-level systematising of a subject such the PSR, which is no longer an emerging issue, but rather a widely emerged one in other national contexts and among the most various operators, including not only legal scholars, but also medical surveillance designated doctors, experts in company organisation and work psychologists. In the current evolution stage of the research in the field of Labour Law, it appeared of key importance to offer a systematising contribution of strictly legal nature, and enhanced with a comparative perspective. These are the three patterns through which the topic at hand is analysed: the systematic approach, the focus on its relevance to legal subjects, and comparison as a method at the base of research.
