Workplace stressors related to negative health consequences, studies that have examined the relative risk of stress across occupations, and future needs in occupational stress research were discussed. Investigations of job factors such as physical working conditions, organizational factors, career development, security, workload, work pace, work hours, time pressure, work roles, and work tasks were reviewed.
