Job stress is a widespread concern across all occupational levels, and is a commonly reported cause of occupational illness and associated organizational outcomes (e.g., lost work days, turnover, and workers’ compensation claims). Stress-related problems are the second most commonly reported cause of occupational illness, following musculoskeletal complaints. Roughly one fourth of workers reported job stress as affecting their health, and others reported having experienced other adverse psychosocial hazards in the previous year, including bullying, unwanted sexual attention, and acts of violence from people at work or from other people. Further, there is evidence that job strain, the combination of high job demands with low job control and the most widely studied job stressor, has been increasing in prevalence over the last decade. Job stress and other psychosocial hazards, affecting the full range of occupational levels, are widely prevalent and represent a growing concern. Workplace stress is the harmful physical or emotional reaction that happens when your abilities, resources or needs do not match your workplace situation. Anything that causes stress is known as a ‘stressor’. Stress can develop in anyone – workers, employers, managers, supervisors – in any workplace, if there are unrelieved and intense pressures. Stress can affect health and safety in the workplace thru increasing accidents or injuries, absenteeism, worker turnover, reducing productivity, and increasing workers medical and compensation costs
