Occupational Stress. Proceedings of the Conference Held at Los Angeles, November 3, 1977.


PB83177907

Publication Date 1978
Page Count 86
Abstract The volume contains the proceedings of a conference on occupational stress, a subject of increasing concern. The psychological causes and problems of occupational stress are examined; situations leading to feelings of insecurity and inadequacy along with role incongruity are seen as stress producers. Recent NIOSH psychological research is reviewed. These studies include stress-related disease and mental health incidence rates by occupation, mass psychogenic contagion reaction in industry, and the relationship of machine pacing and stress. A study of the health consequences of shiftwork found no evidence that shiftworkers suffered from severe health problems, however, shiftwork might be related to decreased psychological well-being.
