Abstract This paper analyzes how the Job Demand-Control-Support Model (JDC (-S) Model) components influence the risk perception of illness or accident in the workplace and, in particular, the role of Control and Support as moderator variables between the demands and the risk perception. For this purpose, we have analyzed the dimensional structure of the components of the said model from the First Andalusian Labour Conditions Survey. The final sample consists of 7,512 employees and the methodological approach is based on the Structural Equation Models with Latent Variables. Results show four different dimensions in this model, only three of which are shown to influence risk perception (Quantitative Demand, Control and Support). Additionally, no evidence is found to support the modulation of Control and Support between Demands and risk perception.
