Background and Objective: Job stress is one of the factors affecting workers' health and occupational productivity. In recent years, stress has been considered as a factor in the loss of productivity and efficiency induced by stress. This study aimed to investigate the effect of job stress on workers' productivity in one of the Oil and Gas Companies in Southwest Iran.
Materials and Methods: In this study, two separate questionnaires, namely Health and Safety Executive and productivity questionnaire (by Saatchi) were used to assess the job stress and workers' productivity. The validity and reliability of these questionnaires have been reviewed in previous studies. The data were analyzed in SPSS software (version 24). Moreover, a P-value less than 0.05 was considered statistically significant.
Results: According to the results, the mean score of workers' job stress was 3.68 ± 0.43. The results showed that 36.4% and 63.6% of the workers had low and no stress, respectively. In addition, there was a reverse correlation between productivity and job stress with dimensions, such as role, relationship, support of authorities and coworkers, as well as demands (P<0.05). On the other hand, a significant relationship was observed between productivity and variables, such as age, work experience, and education level (P<0.05).
Conclusion: Given the reverse correlation between occupational stress and productivity, it can be concluded that the ability to control the amount of job stress and the influencing factors in the workplace is one of the strategies to increase productivity.
