Objective: To analyze the psychometric properties of the ISTAS 21 questionnaire to assess psychosocial risks in hospital and primary health care personnel who provide care to Covid-19 patients. Methodology: the study has a descriptive, cross-sectional design, in which the psychometric properties of the ISTAS 21 questionnaire to assess psychosocial risks in health personnel were analyzed. Results: 231 professionals (M=34.9, SD=9.36 years) from hospitals and primary care services were evaluated. The confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) evidences poor fit for the 5-factor model of the original structure (RMSEA =.120, CFI =.660, TLI =.597, and SRMR =.140), so the structure is evaluated with an AFE, which explains 50% of the variance and has 5 factors, with adequate internal consistency. Conclusions: It is concluded that the ISTAS 21 has evidence of validity and adequate internal consistency; and can be used to identify psychosocial risks in Peruvian health personnel who care for Covid-19 patients.
