Abstract
Job stress is an everyday reality for many workers and a growing concern in the field of occupational safety and health. This is especially true in light of recent changes in the workplace (e.g., increasing work hours; non-standard employment practices) and increasing evidence that stress has serious implications for worker health. Although job stress is still a subject of some uncertainty to many occupational safety and health professionals, research over the past four decades has taught us much about the sources, effects, and prevention of stress in the workplace. This chapter begins with a brief historical perspective on job stress and then presents an overview of current knowledge organized around three fundamental questions. What is job stress? How is job stress related to occupational safety and health? How can the adverse effects of job stress be reduced or prevented?
