Vidya Vinutha D’ Souza and Dr Mohan AK
Occupational stress is an integral part of every workers life. Moderate work stress is a symptom of a working individual’s lifespan. Every job will have an amount of stress even if the worker has high level of interest in it. But when this stress becomes chronic it can be very devastating and dangerous to the physical and emotional health of the individuals. Stress has negative impact on the productivity of the employees. A detailed system is thus very well required in organisations to reduce employee stress and increase work performance (Altangerel, 2015). Stress is the answer to an event or situation. Parting from family, loneliness on board, fatigue, multi-nationality, limited leisure activity and sleep deprivation are the common reasons for increased stress in seafarers (Carotenuto, 2012). In the Exploratory Study consisting of 100 Deep Sea Fishermen of Mangalore Port at Coastal Karnataka, the researcher measures the amount of occupational stress faced by them. The study is also an effort to analyse the relationships between variables such as age, education, marital status and experience and the amount of stress faced by them at work.
