Psychological stress due to physical sources

Psychological stress is defined as feeling a higher than normal level of mental pressure. There are many causes of psychological stress such as a noisy work environment, an increasing workload, upcoming deadlines or relationships with colleagues.

Among these causes of stress is also the mismatch of interfacing between man and machine. For example: physical strain and discomfort due to improper work height or eye strain due to incorrect positioning of the monitor. Physical, muscular discomfort and pain resulting from continuous exposure to an improper workplace setup can distract a worker from performing their tasks optimally. This indirectly contributes to an increase in the amount of mental pressure felt by the worker. Psychological stress can impact a worker’s overall state of mind, their decision making processes, motivation, work performance, and productivity. Psychological stress therefore hinders the worker’s ability to perform their tasks efficiently.
