  • MARIAMMAL.P

Abstract

Stress in the workplace reduces the health well-being of workers and costs organizations billions of
dollars each year in lost productivity and increased absenteeism. A stressful work environment can
contribute to problems such as headache, stomachache, sleep disturbances, short temper and
difficulty concentrating. Chronic stress can result in anxiety, insomnia, high blood pressure and a
weakened immune system. It can also contribute to health conditions such as depression, obesity and
heart disease. Compounding the problem, people who experience excessive stress often deal with it in
unhealthy ways such as overeating, eating unhealthy foods, smoking cigarettes or abusing drugs and
alcohol.
Transport work has been identified as one of the most stressful profession today. The reasons
for that may be more work load, government rules and regulations. Working environment has a
pronounced effect on stress. Time management, traffic congestions, accident fear, overcrowd,
passenger misbehavior etc., may also lead to stress. The transportation sectors especially the public
transport and its employees face plenty of problems and issues in their day to day life. The data
needed for the study is both primary and secondary data. The study was done to find out the job stress
and level of satisfaction of TNSTC workers towards each factor like compensation, working
environment, career growth, management support, level of stress, and job satisfaction. A welldeveloped transport system has positive implications for access to health care, education and other
basic needs. In the case of passenger road transport, meeting mobility requirements efficiently and
addressing environmental and developmental concerns requires a great attention for efficient human
resource management.
