||A questionnaire survey was carried out in collaboration with occupational physicians to evaluate the stress level of 253 workers, using an analogical visual scale marked with qualitative indications. The objective of the study was also to highlight the symptoms showing the best correlation to stress among a list of 20 items. It was found that the occurrence of stress is frequent, around one worker in four rating their level of stress as being high or very high. Stress also influences absenteeism and consumption of psychotropic drugs. However, no significant relationship was found with age, sex or smoking.
