ANDRADE, Alexsandro Luiz De; MORAES, Thiago Drumond; TOSOLI, Antônio Marcos  y  WACHELKE, João. Burnout, safety climate, and working conditions for hospital professionals. Rev. Psicol., Organ. Trab. [online]. 2015, vol.15, n.3, pp.233-245. ISSN 1984-6657.

This study presents results from a theoretical- empirical model that assembles aspects of the work context, safety climate, and psychosocial work variables in a hospital setting, and their consequences in the manifestation of burnout syndrome. Burnout is a disorder related to work associated with severe occupational stress. The syndrome is characterized by emotional exhaustion of workers and is established by means of certain associations among individual, environmental, and work characteristics.The goal of this study is to develop and test a structural theoretical model linking dimensional variables of work, burnout, and mental health. This is a survey type of design with a convenience sample of 200 health professionals, 174 of whom were female (87%),mean age was 34.4 years, and with a mean of 6.5 years of work in the profession. The instrument for this research was composed of psychological scales for the following constructs: a) work security climate, b) work conditions, c) burnout, and d) socio-demographic aspects. The results indicate the existence of relationships between different aspects of work, safety climate, and health as observed through two integrative theoretical models of psychosocial variables, safety climate, and health for workers in hospital environments. These data help guide policies for worker health protection and prevention taken as a core strategy to ensure the provision of care within the daily routine of the hospital environment.
