GOMEZ ROJAS, Paola; HERNANDEZ GUERRERO, Julia  and  MENDEZ CAMPOS, María Doris. Psychosocial Risk Factors and Job Satisfaction in a Chilean Company Mining Area. Cienc Trab. [online]. 2014, vol.16, n.49, pp.9-16. ISSN 0718-2449.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-24492014000100003.

The objective of this research is to identify wether a relationship exists between Psychosocial Risk factors and Job satisfaction in a subcontractor workers in the mining sector in Chile. Questionnaire was used SUSESO-ISTAS 21, adapted to the Chilean population and the Job Satisfaction Questionnaire S20/23 (Meliá & Peiró, 1989), applied to a sample of 100 workers. The results show that there is a significant negative correlation between risk factors and job satisfaction in active labor dimensions and possibilities of development, social support and quality in the company leadership, compensation and dual presence, indicating that greater psychosocial risk lower perceived job satisfaction. For the dimension active work and development opportunities, it was found that operators/attendants have a high exposure range and the other on a mid-range, others in a meaningful relationship between the psychological demands dimension according to the section where they work. We discuss the study's implications to future research and organizational interventions.
