Survey on psychosocial factors in the workplace
COPSOQ German standard version

Welcome to

Scientific research and risk assessment with the Copenhagen Psychosocial Questionnaire (COPSOQ) in Germany

Our office is located at the Freiburg research centre for occupational sciences (FFAW). We carry out surveys on psychosocial health factors and work strain based on COPSOQ as it is validated in Germany (read article in English) and also in the global context. Customers are companies and organizations of all branches and sectors from regional to global level.

You can download the German version of the questionnaire in English here.


Currently in Germany we hold a collection of more than 400,000 datasets referring to workers in many different occupations. This is an excellent base to compare strain-values of a certain company with the appropriate average values. Such benchmarks are helpful as they indicate clearly what is fine and where to act.

As COPSOQ has been translated into more than 25 languages, we offer online-surveys in various languages as a matter of routine. Alternatively we can address our partners throughout the world, connected by the COPSOQ International Network.
