Abstract A study of stress factors perceived by the 42 employees of a pensioners' home was carried out by questionnaire and through interviews. A second questionnaire on the means of surveillance of stress factors was limited to the management and team leaders of the institution (7 persons). The results differ somewhat according to the levels of the staff. Stress factors perceived by all employees include the workload, the fast pace of work, the physical workload, the mental workload, the lack of decision latitude and the lack of information. The results of the questionnaire on the means of surveillance show that the establishment is capable of identifying stress factors, and therefore capable of implementing corrective measures to improve working conditions.
