What is Occupational Stress?

Occupational stress is used to describe stress related to work. It is not a disease, but it reflects the physiological and emotional response that occurs when employees perceived an imbalance between their work demands and their capability and/or resources to meet these demands.

The potential causes of occupational stress are varied and include workload, organisational culture and personal conflicts at work. Personal factors also frequently influence the course of work-related stress.

Occupational Stress can cause:

  • Poor Health
  • Increased labour turnover
  • Low productivity
  • Accidents and Injuries
  • Low morale

The nature of work is rapidly changing. It is perhaps now more so than ever that work related stress poses a threat to the health of employees, which in turn can negatively impact on their work and the well being of the organisation. Despite being the second biggest occupational health problem affecting one in three employees, occupational stress is still an evasive concept to many.
