||Two questionnaires were administered to 1652 office workers of Milan City Council, in order to assess their cardiovascular health status and the impact of stress factors on it. For the first aspect the WHO Mopsy Questionnaire, while for the other the Swedish Kjellberg & Iwanowski Mood Scale were utilized. This method is used for the measurement of stress and arousal conditions in neurotoxicology. The aim of the study was to validate the Italian translation of the original Mood Scale questionnaire, correlating it with other questionnaires, such as the above mentioned Mopsy scale. This questionnaire has possible uses in health surveillance and for investigations of stress and arousal changes in the workplace. A good surface and construct validity and good internal consistency were observed.
