Abstract

Daily work activities are among the sources of stress to humans. Typically, each individual will spend 1/3 of their day at work. It is no exaggeration to say that 1/3 affects the other 2/3. Appropriate assessments should be conducted to assess what employment factors and the work environment contribute to this. This study explains the development process and the use of the Environmental & Occupational Probability Scale screening form on mental health status or known as SKiPP. This assessment can be used to measure both of these factors on the mental health status of employees based on the DASS21 score.

Keywords: DASS21; Person-Environment-Occupation model; Work-related stress
