Abstract

GARCIA, Átala Lotti et al. OCCUPATIONAL STRESS IN THE PRINTED MEDIA: A CHRISTOPHE DEJOURS PERSPECTIVE. Trab. educ. saúde [online]. 2020, vol.18, n.1, e0023570.  Epub Nov 11, 2019. ISSN 1981-7746.  https://doi.org/10.1590/1981-7746-sol00235.

Stress at work affects psychological, physical and social aspects of the workers, as well as the efficacy of the productive organizations. The goal of the present study was to comprehend occupational stress in the journalistic media under the perspective of the organization of labor. It is a qualitative research conducted through Bardin’s content analysis, based on the analytical categories previously defined by the World Health Organization in the ‘Work Organization & Stress’ report, under the perspective of the theoretical framework of Christophe Dejours. We classified 727 news stories that had ‘stress’ as a keyword, with 130 news stories specifically approaching the topic of stress at work. The news stories were divided into two categories, each with subcategories of their own: ‘Content of the Risks of Stress’ (47) and ‘Context of the Risks of Stress’ (59). We verified that the media has scarcely been working as the spokesperson for the workers in order to fulfill its social role, without stimulating them as social subjects. We propose that the news media stimulates actions that boost the prominence of the workers, based on the visibility of the current laws, and indicates more direct ways for the workers to be able to fight to guarantee their rights to health in the struggle against stress, with a critical perspective of the understanding regarding the organization of labor and its potentialities in the promotion of health.

Keywords : communications media; occupational stress; work hours.
