Abstract

The occurrence of work stress is quite rampant in manufacturing organizations which involved blue collar workers. The literature revealed that poor ergonomics workstation environment is among the major contributor to the work stress problems. Thus, this study aims to examine the relationship between ergonomics workstation factors and the work stress outcomes. Five hundred samples of production operators were derived from eleven manufacturing electronics organizations which were registered with Malaysian International Chamber of Commerce and Industry (MICCI) by using proportionate stratified random sampling. Questionnaires were used for the data collections process. The Pearson correlation analysis shows that all ergonomics workstation factors have high significant correlation with the work stress outcomes.
