PALACIOS NAVA, Martha Edilia  e  MONTES DE OCA ZAVALA, Verónica. Working conditions and stress in university academics. Cienc Trab. [online]. 2017, vol.19, n.58, pp.49-53. ISSN 0718-2449.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-24492017000100049.

Objective:

To identify working conditions in university academics and their relation with the prevalence of stress.

Methodology:

A cross sectional study was carried out with 248 teachers. Stress was deter mined using the Karasek-Theorell demand/control instrument.

Results:

19.4% had high stress at work. The average of emotional stress score calculated by the ratio term was 0.8479 SD ± 0.1185. Statistically significant differences were found in the levels of demand and control according to the labor category, work shift and membership in the National System of Researchers. Career teachers had the highest prevalence of high tension (24.4%). These had 3 times the risk of presenting it in comparison with the investigators, p <0.001.

Discussion:

Researchers and career professors had high levels of demands on their work. Similar to other investigations, it was observed that those who perform their work in more precarious condi tions are more likely to present work stress and develop diseases.

Conclusions:

It is necessary to implement preventive measures in the work of academics to avoid that their quality of life and health suffer a greater deterioration.
