Stress Monitoring in the Workplace demonstrates how well-established physiological techniques combined with new sophisticated electronic devices can be used to transfer the basic work physiology laboratory from an academic setting into the field. This approach enables researchers to monitor and study workers at the workers' places of employment under actual job conditions. Available techniques and tools for monitoring physical, mental, and environmental work stresses are described, and a series of monitoring examples is provided. Information in the book is based on the author's own experience supplemented by recent trends in the development of new technology. The book will interest industrial physicians, nurses, and physiologists; industrial health and safety personnel, work physiologists, occupational psychologists, and civilian and military human factors research groups.
