health of workers and increase the likelihood of exposure to psychosocial risks. To un-
derstand this change and contextualize the latent precariousness at present, the vari-
ous transformations of labour relations will be addressed from the sixteenth century
to the present days.
The term precariousness will be analysed and the different aspects of this complex
phenomenon will be studied. Beside, normative changes introduced by the executive
will be briefly explained and current data will be examined.
In the same way, the psychosocial risks and their factors will be defined and contex-
tualized, specially taking into account the stress. The European and Spanish psycho-
social risks’ regulation will be analysed in order to identify possible failures.
These two concepts’ interrelation will be addressed from experiential point of view
through qualitative study principally focused on the situation of qualified young
The regulation lack about psychosocial risks, the little social awareness and the capi-
talist productive model produce carelessness on workers and their health. Therefore,
it is necessary to create a new socioeconomical culture and legislative adjustments in
order to fight emerging generation of psychosocial risks in the labour field.
