Abstract Factors which may facilitate the onset of a stress syndrome in the workplace are analyzed and their role in evaluating job fitness is examined. The main factors discussed are job content and organisation, control at work, interpersonal relations, the balance of roles, monitoring of changes, coordination of management and health services, and workers' possibilities for advancement. The characteristics of stress syndrome are compared with those found in post-traumatic syndromes, and the role of individual factors in the aetiology of stress syndrome is considered.
