The 30-item Job Stress Survey (JSS) was developed to assess sources of work-related stress. It provides valuable information about the specific aspects of a particular job or work environment that may be good targets for job redesign, organisational change, or other interventions.

The client indicates on a scale of 0 to 9+ days how often each JSS stressor event has occurred during the preceding 6 months.

The 10-item JSS subscales measure components of occupational stress associated with the job itself (i.e., Job Pressure) and with supervisors, co-workers, or the policies and procedures of the organisation (i.e., Lack of Organisational Support).
