Abstract
Physical and psychological stress problems encountered by paced office workers were examined in a presentation to the 1981 International Conference on Machine Pacing and Occupational Stress. Questionnaires were sent to machine paced letter sorting workers examining a number of job specific stress and worker health areas such as job stressors, health complaints, and disease states. Machine paced mail sorting workers reported higher job stress than distribution clerks doing mail sorting by hand. The stress was related to overall job and task dissatisfaction, highly repetitive cognitive demands, and high work pressure.
