Machine pacing and occupational stress.
Proceedings of the International Conference, Purdue University, March 1981, 1981 Mar; :1-382
Papers given at the First International Conference on Machine Pacing and Occupational Stress at Purdue University in March 1981 were presented. The conference was sponsored by the Division of Biomedical and Behavioral Science of NIOSH and the Human Factors Program, School of Industrial Engineering, Purdue University. The rationale for the conference was the fact that more than 50 million people worldwide were working on machine paced jobs. Stress associated with machine paced as well as other jobs is suspected of being a major cause of mental illness, coronary disease, and gastrointestinal disorders. Transcripts of 46 presentations in the areas of perspectives of work pacing and stress, models of human stress, variables relating to stress, selected issues in machine paced research, the impact of machine paced work on stress, the impact of computer paced work on stress, and problems in determining the relationship between production work and stress were provided.
