||Following an introduction to the social and economic factors that can influence stress, this article goes on to explain stress and how it originates. Industrial hygiene is used as an example to illustrate how stress and its modes of action can be compared to physical or chemical agents: stress is transmitted by psychological pathways; it is a function of durations of exposure; stress factors are present in the working environment; limit values can be defined for stress factors. The different types of preventive measures (primary, secondary and tertiary) are reviewed and the need for enterprises to have access to instruments for the determination of stress factors and the evaluation of the degree and type of stress is emphasized.
