The balance theory developed by Smith and Carayon-Sainfort (1989) provides a useful framework to examine relationships and interactions between work organization and ergonomic factors, and their effect on worker stress. According to this theory, stress is a result of an imbalance between elements of the work system. This imbalance produces a ‘load’ on the human response mechanisms that can produce adverse reactions, both psychological and physiological. The human response mechanisms, which include behavior, physiological reactions, and cognition, act to bring control over the environmental factors that are creating an imbalance.
