Abstract
This paper gives a historical perspective on the growth of job stress as an occupational health problem in the U.S., and describes traditional (worker focused) practices for dealing with job stress in the U.S. workplace. As a point of departure, the emerging concept of "organizational health" is discussed as a new framework for understanding and preventing job stress. In this new approach, organizational effectiveness and worker well-being are seen as inseparable, and both are influenced by macro-organizational characteristics such as organizational climate and culture.
