Reviewing related studies, the theory construction, measurement, validation of PSC, and the mechanism of PSC in the Job Demand-Resource Model (JD-R Model) is systematically clarified, and the theoretical and managerial implications of this new model is discussed. It also puts forwards such future research directions as the perfection of PSC theory and measurement, hierarchical match of resources with occupational demands, the consideration of external and individual factors, and conduction of native research.

Key words: psychosocial safety climate, job demand-resource model, work stress, psychological health
