    • Abstract: Resumen: La implementación del Cuestionario SUSESO/ISTAS 21 como un protocolo de vigilancia de salud mental en las organizaciones ha sido utilizada en los últimos cinco años en Chile. El objetivo de esta investigación es analizar el comportamiento de las propiedades psi- cométricas del cuestionario en su versión breve en el contexto chile no. El estudio realizó un análisis factorial confirmatorio con cinco dimensiones. Se emplearon medidas de bondad para ajuste del mode lo como RMR, GFI, AGFI, NFI y PGFI. Para el la obtención de la fiabilidad del instrumento se emplea el Coeficiente Omega. De igual manera, se realizó un análisis de la validez convergente y discrimi nante del cuestionario. Por su parte, la muestra está compuesta por 1184 trabajadores. Se concluye que el cuestionario SUSESO/ISTAS 21 en su versión breve no cuenta con los parámetros de confiabilidad y validez necesarios para su aplicación. Finalmente, la estrategia de reducción de dimensiones no es apropiada.Abstract: In the last five years, SUSESO/ISTAS21 has been implemented as the main protocol for watching mental health within organizations in Chile. The present work aims to review the psychometric properties of the short form of this questionnaire in the Chilean context. For this purpose we conducted a confirmatory factorial analysis (CFA) for a five-factor model, checking for goodness of fit (through GFI, AGFI, PGFI, NFI, and RMR), on a sample of 1.184 workers. Additionally, the reliability of the instrument was assessed through the Omega Coefficient, and the convergent and discriminant validity were also checked. These multiple analyses show that the short form SUSESO/ ISTAS21 questionnaire does not meet the realiability and validity standards required for its use. The former reveals the inadequacy of the dimension reduction strategy implemented.

    • Abstract: Abstract: Introduction: The decision for retirement is an important event in the life of people and may be influenced by several factors such as health problems, work satisfaction and repertoire of daily activities. Aim: to describe the involvement in activities, to assess work satisfaction and to compare these variables between workers who are close to retire ment. Methods: 72 servers of public university were evaluated through a demographic and occupational social data; Diversity Sum in Time Allocation and Work Satisfaction Questionnaire. Results: Most were women (59.7%) with an 56 years old. Regarding the deci sion of retiring, 58.3% did not want to retire. The work satisfaction showed moderate to high values and there was no difference between the groups. Participants presented a balanced involvement in daily activities, with greater allocation of time to personal and home care. The group intending to retire indicated little expectation of changes in their activities. Workers who intend to postpone their retirement are planning transitions in almost all areas of activities and relationships. Conclusions: Poor involvement in activities and workers who want to retire indicated few expectations of changes in daily activities. In contrast, workers who intend to delay retirement have expectations of changes in most of the activities.Resumen: Introducción: La decisión de jubilarse es un evento importante en la vida de las personas y puede verse influido por varios factores, como los problemas de salud, la satisfacción laboral y el repertorio de actividades diarias. Objetivo: describir la participación en las actividades, evaluar la satisfacción laboral y comparar estas variables entre los trabajadores que están cerca de la jubilación. Métodos: se evaluaron 72 servidores de universidades públicas a través de datos sociales demográficos y ocupacionales; Sumario de diversidad en asignación de tiempo y cuestionario de satisfacción laboral. Resultados: la mayoría eran mujeres (59,7%) con 56 años. Respecto a la decisión de retirarse, el 58.3% no quiso retirarse. La satisfacción laboral mostró valores moderados a altos y no hubo diferencias entre los grupos. Los participantes presentaron una participación equilibrada en las activi dades diarias, con una mayor asignación de tiempo para la atención personal y domiciliaria.

    • Abstract: Resumen: Objetivo: Determinar el impacto causado por el tipo de herramienta y tipo de guante sobre la transmisibilidad de la vibración mano-brazo. Métodos: Se realizó un diseño experimental a trabajadores del sector de hidrocarburos, con el objetivo de identificar la transmisibilidad global de los guantes en diferentes actividades. Las mediciones se realizaron a través de dos acelerómetros: uno instalado en la máqui na y otro en la palma de la mano. La transmisibilidad fue calculada en el rango de frecuencias 0-2 kHz, para cinco tipos de herramientas y 3 tipos de guantes. Finalmente, se compararon los tiempos de exposición a los que puede estar expuesto el trabajador con el uso de los guantes. Resultados: Se identificó la efectividad de los guantes para proteger a los operarios, permitiéndoles trabajar un mayor número de horas por día. El análisis estadístico evidencia que la variable tipo de herra mienta tiene un efecto significativo sobre la transmisibilidad, mien tras que el tipo de guante no presenta efecto estadístico alguno. El estudio presenta los porcentajes de aumento de tiempos de exposi ción y el estudio de las transmisibilidades. Conclusiones: Los tres tipos de guantes evaluados mostraron tener un desempeño eficaz como atenuadores de la vibración. El aumento del tiempo de exposición permitido al usar guantes es muy significa tivo para todas las herramientas.Abstract: Objective: Determine the impact caused by the type of tool and type of glove on the transmissibility of the hand-arm vibration. Methods: An experimental design was carried out for workers in the hydrocarbon sector, in order to identify the global transmissibility of gloves in different activities. The measurements were made through two accelerometers: one installed in the machine and the other in the palm of the hand. The transmissibility was calculated in the fre quency range 0-2 kHz, for five types of tools and 3 types of gloves. Finally, the exposure times to which the worker may be exposed with the use of gloves were compared. Results: The effectiveness of the gloves was identified to protect the workers, allowing them to work a greater number of hours per day. The statistical analysis shows that the variable type of tool has a significant effect on transmissibility, while the type of glove does not have any statistical effect. The study presents the percentages of increase in exposure times and the study of transmissibilities. Conclusions: The three types of gloves evaluated showed an effec tive performance as vibration attenuators. The increase of the expo sure time allowed when wearing gloves is very significant for all tools.

    • Abstract: Abstract: Within the framework of Corporate Social Responsibility, workers' perceptions regarding human resource policies and practices imple mented by the organization are relevant to the organizational commit ment that they display towards the institution. We analyze the rela tionship between workers' perceptions of company human resource policies and practices and the multidimensional construct of organi zational commitment through cross-sectional correlational research for a sample of 89 workers from 7 different organizations in the Ñuble Province, Chile. This study aims to understand workers' perceptions regarding the implementation, by the organization, of certain labor policies and practices, and its relationship with the degree of organi zational commitment, measured through the instrument proposed by Meyer and Allen in 1991. The results show that most of the good practices analyzed have a high positive and moderate correlation with organizational commitment. The positive relationship between com mitment and at least one of the aspects of each “Good Labor Practice” studied is highlighted: Benefits and Compensations, Health and Safety, Human Resources Processes, Training and Professional Development and Work Conciliation.Resumen: En el marco de la Responsabilidad Social Empresarial, la percepción de los trabajadores respecto de las políticas y prácticas de recursos humanos que implementa la organización, son relevantes en su compromiso organizacional. Se analiza la relación entre la percep ción del trabajador de las políticas y prácticas de recursos humanos de la empresa y el constructo multidimensional de compromiso organizacional, a través de una investigación de tipo correlacional, de corte transversal, para una muestra de 89 trabajadores prove nientes de 7 organizaciones de la Provincia de Ñuble. El objetivo es determinadar si las políticas y prácticas laborales implementadas por las empresas se relaciona con el grado de compromiso organi zacional que manifiesta el trabajador, medido a trevés del instru mento propuesto por Meyer y Allen en 1991. Los resultados mues tran que la mayoría de las buenas prácticas analizadas, tienen una correlación positiva y moderada con el compromiso con la organi zación. Se destaca la relación positiva entre el compromiso y al menos uno de los aspectos de cada “Buena Práctica Laboral” estu diada: Beneficios y Compensaciones, Salud y Seguridad, Procesos de Recursos Humanos, Capacitación y Desarrollo Profesional, y Conciliación Laboral.

    • Abstract: Resumen: Este estudio tuvo por objetivo describir la salud y el riesgo psicoso- cial en tres centros de salud públicos y analizar sus asociaciones con condiciones de trabajo y enfermedad. El método incluyó un diseño observacional, analítico, transversal y una muestra total de 438 funcionarios quienes respondieron el cuestionario validado en Chile, SUSESO/ISTAS 21. Los resultados muestran que 14,6% reportan tener una enfermedad diagnosticada provocada y/o agravada por el trabajo lo que es consistente con bajos niveles de salud general, salud mental, vitalidad y altos niveles de síntomas de estrés y con condiciones de trabajo de desequilibrio entre esfuerzo-recompensa. Se observaron 4 riesgos psicosociales altos, comunes y presentes en todos los centros y 9 riesgos psicosociales altos que permiten discri minar entre funcionarios sanos y enfermos. Se discute y concluye la importancia de atender a los riesgos y condiciones comunes en centros de salud.Abstract: The objective of this study was to describe health and psychosocial risk in three public health centers and analyze their associations with working conditions and illness. The method included an observa tional, analytical, cross-sectional design and a total sample of 438 officials who answered the questionnaire validated in Chile, SUSESO / ISTAS 21. The results show that 14.6% report having a diagnosed illness caused and / or aggravated by work, which is consistent with low levels of general health, mental health, vitality and high levels of stress symptoms and with imbalanced work conditions between effort-reward. There were 4 high psychosocial risks, common and present in all centers, and 9 high psychosocial risks that allow dis criminating between healthy and sick officials. The importance of attending to common risks and conditions in health centers is dis cussed and concluded.

    • Abstract: Resumen: En el marco del Sistema Nacional de Gestión de Riesgos de Desastres, el Estado Peruano ha establecido la necesidad de desarro llar la Gestión de la Continuidad Operativa en todos los niveles de gobierno. A partir de ello, nace la obligación que las entidades públicas deban elaborar Planes de Continuidad Operativa; sin embargo, no se cuenta con referencias documentarias ni técnicas que permitan servir de información de entrada para dichos planes. Actualmente, existe abundante normativa técnicas e investigacio nes que desarrollan la continuidad operativa (continuidad de nego cio) bajo el enfoque de las tecnologías de la información. La presente investigación consistió en la revisión de documentación normativa, técnica y de benchmark (modelos empresariales) con el propósito de diseñar la estructura modelo que debería comprender un Plan de Continuidad Operativa. Dicha estructura modelo fue implementada en una empresa de ser vicios de saneamiento, permitiéndole abordar las amenazas de riesgo operativo en los macroprocesos y procesos de Nivel 1 consi derados como prioritarios.Abstract: According to the National Disaster Risk Management System, the Peruvian State has established the need to develop the Business Continuity Management at all levels of government. From this, the obligation that the public entities must elaborate Business Continuity Plans is born; however, there are no documentary references or techniques that can serve as input information for these plans. Currently, there are abundant technical regulations and investiga tions that develop business continuity under the focus of informa tion technologies. The present investigation consisted in the revision of normative, technical and benchmark documentation with the purpose of design ing the model structure that should comprise an Operational Continuity Plan. This model structure was implemented in a public water company, allowing it to address the operational risk threats in the macro processes and processes Level 1.

El análisis de fiabilidad del cuestionario presento valores de alfa de Cronbach, para Satisfacción Laboral entre 0,656 y 0,923, para Estrés Laboral entre 0,635 y 0,927 siendo aceptable la fiabilidad en ambos. En general, respecto al estrés todos los grupos de trabajo se ubican en el cuadrante baja tensión, baja demanda psicológica, alto control laboral y alto apoyo global. Respecto a Satisfacción laboral el prome dio general en las líneas de trabajo evaluadas es de 3,8 puntos, lo que denota un nivel mediano de satisfacción laboral. Las correlaciones permiten concluir que a mayor percepción de las variables de Satisfacción laboral y mayor Control sobre el trabajo, se logra reducir el grado de estrés.

A cross-sectional, descriptive, correlational empirical study was developed, with a study universe consisting of 184 workers, divided into five groups. The self-administered and anonymous questionnaire with 71 items divided into 3 sections: general information, work stress and job satisfaction. The reliability analysis of the questionnaire presented values of Cronbach's alpha, for Labor Satisfaction between 0.656 and 0.923, for Labor Stress between 0.635 and 0.927, the reliability being acceptable in both. In general, with respect to stress, all work groups are located in the low tension, low psychological demand, high labor control and high global support quadrant. Regarding Job Satisfaction, the general average in the evaluated work lines is 3.8 points, which denotes a medium level of job satisfaction. The correlations allow us to conclude that the greater the perception of the variables of job satisfaction and greater control over work, the reduction of the degree of stress is achieved. In addition, the dimen sion of Global Labor Social Support increases the Labor Satisfaction, allowing to reduce stress.
