SAW: Stress at Work

Stress at Work is determined by the extent to which an individual perceives they have excessive pressures and feel stressed at work. 

Workplace stress in now considered one of the top five job-related health problems in the U.S.  The QoWL SAW factor is assessed through items dealing with demand and perception of stress and actual demand overload. It is possible to be pressured at work and not be stressed at work (indeed some authors argue that lack of pressure at work can lead to stress), but in general high stress is associated with high pressure.
