Amin Asgari, Esmail Shojab, Sajjad Barzegarc

Job stress is one of the important factors for productivity in the workplace. Stress can be defined as physical and mental changes when responding to different environmental conditions. Exposure to the physical hazards of the work environment can cause a person's behavioral change also the psychological hazards of the workplace, such as job design, management, and organization can hurt workers. This descriptive cross-sectional study was conducted in August to February 2018 in Northwest Iranian Power Distribution Company. The combination of self-reporting and observation techniques was used to collect data. The result shows that the average job stress is 171.6 ± 17.5, which represents the "moderate-high "level. There was a significant difference between the mean electric field, role boundary (P=0.005), physical environment (P=0.045), and magnetic field, role insufficiency (p=0.001), the results show the relationship between variables and job stress in a way that there is a direct relationship between work hours and occupational stress and increases with the increase in the hours of work, but the job stress also increases and this is accepted by other studies. In this study, we found the relationship between job stress and occupational exposure to electromagnetic fields and workplace lighting.
