Workplace stress occurs in all professions: Maznah

ROMPIN: Workplace stress is not confined to certain professions and occurs across the board, including journalism, said Deputy Human Resources Minister Datuk Maznah Mazlan.

Maznah, who is National Council of Occupational Safety and Health chairperson, emphasised that if stress is neglected it could jeorpadise the staff performance and their environment.

"Stress definitely needs to be attended to, as the International Labour Organisation has identified it as one of the main hazards among workers in this century," she told reporters here.

"In extreme cases the victim's stress not only affects their behaviour but also has an impact on their colleagues," she added.

She was commenting on the death of a houseman at the Kajang Hospital who recently died of an alleged drug overdose due to work pressure. BERNAMA
