||This report consists of a translation of papers on stress research projects carried out at the Dutch TNO Institute. The first paper shows that stress is the most important occupational disease in Europe, resulting in high costs both for enterprises and for the society at large. It is argued that in order to reduce the level of absenteeism due to stress, prevention at source should be favoured over stress management. The second paper proposes an organizational approach to coping with strong work demands and time pressures. It involves making an inventory of the current situation, identifying problem areas, proposing measures, and implementing and evaluating the measures. An example of a survey questionnaire in included.
