MARTINEZ BUELVAS, Laura; OVIEDO-TRESPALACIOS, Oscar  e  LUNA AMAYA, Carmenza. Working conditions impacting quality of work life. Salud, Barranquilla [online]. 2013, vol.29, n.3, pp.542-560. ISSN 0120-5552.

Objective: Propose a conceptual classification scheme (CCS) based on the content analysis method, in order to determine gaps in knowledge regarding to the working conditions variables that impact the Quality of Work Life. Materials and methods: We used an integral methodology that considers around 54 scientific papers of the period 1992-2012, from which, we structured different categories of classification like year of publication, title of the journal and a conceptual framework based on questions. Results:The amount of research related to the topic of study has increased over the past decade. The total increased from 6 articles reviewed in the period 1992-2001 to 48 in the period 2002-2012. Moreover, 76 % of the articles analyzed concludes that there is a close relationship between working conditions and the impact on physical and mental health workers; however, with a rate of 9 % different research present the relation between the favorable conditions of work and the increased of productivity. Conclusions: Advances in the field have induced to estimate new methodologies and / or tools, in order to evaluate the conditions that workers are exposed and thus involve not only achieve financial and operations objectives, but also, the benefits towards their personal and professional development.
