Stress and Adaptive Mechanisms of the Seafarers
AbstractToday stress is psychological and not another time, mentally. This is especially multiforme and its mark where we least expect or not expect at all. Strain, race against time, pressure, but this is just the tip of the iceberg. No we have no idea of many stressors we have every day.. What happens then? What is this strange evil? Our working conditions are far from being so heavy like old times. Ever more sophisticated technologies are being developed to facilitate the tasks we most dirty and improve communication between us. Working time is reduced by regularly to leave more space to our private lives and leisure time. And yet! All indicators show the danger. However paradoxical it might seem, occupational stress levels are unmatched, regardless of socio-professional category under consideration, employees or staff. The consequences are difficult for the individual, whoever he may be: chronic fatigue, sleep disturbance, anxiety, depression, cardiovascular disease, digestive problems, etc.. For all these evils, one agent is responsible - stress, also in the Romanian landscape tragic news, we see cases of suicide in the workplace. Stress will be recognized as an occupational disease, as happens in other European countries.
