This book begins by analyzing the relationship between occupational stress and workplace bullying in the educational sector. It continues to examine the insufficient recovery from job stress as a risk factor for poor health and well-being; stress, burnout and coping strategies in the emergency and intensive care units of hospitals; pile-up stress from age discrimination on older working people’s adjustments; and discusses the role of psychosocial safety climates in job stress and work-related injuries.
