Stress in the work place

stress-workplaceStress is a term that is widely used in everyday life with most people having some appreciation about its meaning. Commonly it is believed to occur in situations where there is excessive pressure being placed on someone.

Work-related stress describes the physical, mental and emotional reactions of workers who perceive that their work demands exceed their abilities and/or their resources (such as time, help/support) to do the work. It occurs when they perceive they are not coping in situations where it is important to them that they cope.

When stressful situations go unresolved, the body is kept in a constant state of stimulation, which can result in physiological and/or psychological illness. Common health outcomes linked to stress include cardiovascular disease, immune deficiency disorders, gastrointestinal disorders, musculoskeletal disorders and psychiatric/psychological illness.
