Abstract


Aim:  describe  the  degree  of  stress  of  the  shipyard  workers, according to the dimensions of demand and control. Method: descriptive research of the sectional  type.  A  self-applied  structured  questionnaire  was  used.  Demand  and  control were  measured  by the  scale  adapted to  Portuguese,  based  on the  short version  of  the Job  Stress  Scale.  Results:  among  the  114  participants,  the  following  points  were presented.:  Demand 11  points,  with  63.2%  of  workers  below  the median;  and  Control 12 points, most employees with scores below the median (57.9%). Most of the workers were in low demand (36.8%). Discussion: the environment and the proper relationship to  the  work  activity,  according  to the  conditions  in  which they  occur, can  also  produce physical  and  mental  wear.  Conclusion:  the  low  demand  situation  provides  greater motivation to create and develop positive behavior at work. It’s should also be alert to the need to develop inter-institutional and multidisciplinary actions in mental health and work.
