Abstract

This cross-sectional study aims to examine the relationship between job stress and tinnitus. The subjects consisted of 183 workers of Expressway Authority of Thailand. Data was collected using self-administered questionnaires pertaining to personal information, working conditions, job stress, and tinnitus symptoms. The relationship between job stress and tinnitus was analyzed by multiple logistics regressions. The findings revealed that 16.9% of workers had tinnitus. Twenty percent of the subjects reported high job strain. Multiple logistic regression analysis indicated that job stress significantly correlates with tinnitus. The results suggest that the intervention aiming at the prevention of tinnitus from job stress in workers of Expressway Authority of Thailand should be taken into consideration.
