Abstract

【Background】Use of the Brief Job Stress Questionnaire(BJSQ) stress analysis system can have great significance for primary prevention given that employees are not always conscious of their own mental health condition and may not realize they are suffering stress.Further,the BJSQ can reveal other concealed factors connected to job-related stress.Consequently,employers are encouraged to not only conduct the BJSQ but also establish concrete plans to alleviate job-related stress.However,if individuals understand the factors related to subjective job-related sress,they can more easily cope with the stress when they encounter it.
【Purpose】The objective of this study was to shed light on the relationship between degree of subjective job-related stress and factors related to job stress in female workers at geriatric health services facilities(GHSFs)using the Brief Job Stress Questionnaire(BJSQ).
【Methods】We delivered the questionnaire consisting of the BJSQ along with a measurement of lifestyle, subjective well-being, and a number of other factors, to all employees across three GHSFs.Because GHSF workers are predominantly women, we analyzed date derived from the questionnaires completed by female employees. The subjects comprise 297 women aged from 20 to 73 years old. Using multiple linear regression analysis, we calculated the β value (95% confidential intervals) between subjective job-related stress (dependent factor) and other factors (independent factors) that were significantly associated according to Spearman rank correlations.
【Results】The factors of“quantity of psychological burden at work”,and“satisfaction with occupational life”showed statistically positive relation to subjective job-related stress. On the other hand, the factors of“regularity of walking and exercise”,and“social capital in the work place”, showed negative relation using linear regression analysis.
【Conclusion】Employers need to not only conduct the BJSQ but also establish specific plans to alleviate job-related stress. For female employees working at GHSFs, approaches that minimize factors producing subjective job-related stress are important to alleviate their subjective job-related stress, leading to an improvement in mental health.
