This paper reviews Australian research into occupational stress. The context of organizational life in Australia is outlined, including the attitudes and values that have conditioned stress research. Empirical studies of occupational stress and health are reviewed, and new psychobiological studies which index stress by urinary hormonal analysis (catecholamines, cortisol) are detailed. The use of stress management programs at the workplace is discussed within the context of Australian industrial relations and workers' compensation developments.
