We all have to deal with a certain amount of stress at the workplace. Some jobs can be more stressful than others, as well as being physically dangerous.Some of the factors to determine the stress levels of a particular occupation include: travel, deadlines, competitiveness, physical demands, environmental conditions, hazards encountered, the life of oneself or others at risk, and interacting with the public.
