Differences and Stress
Several studies have attempted to
identify which jobs have more stressors than others. You may note that one
problem with rating occupations in terms of their stress levels is that a
particular occupation may have considerably different tasks and job
environments in different organizations and societies. The job of a police
officer may be less stressful in a small town than in a large city where crime
rates are higher and the organizational hierarchy is more formal.
Another important point for you
to remember is that a major stressor to one person may be insignificant to
another. We cannot conclude that people in high-stress occupations actually
experience higher stress than people in other occupations. Some jobs expose
people to more serious stressors, but careful selection and training can result
in stress levels no different from those experienced by people in other jobs.
