Significance: Research findings can be used to develop strategies to improve sleep and decrease stress, leading to a lower incidence of absences and on-the-job injuries. Description of project: The study investigates the relationship between the variables "I have trouble sleeping" and "I feel work causes me excessive stress" among workers. The hypotheses are: 1. A positive relationship between self-reported trouble sleeping and work-related stress exists. 2. A positive relationship between trouble sleeping and documented illness and injury exists. 3. A positive relationship between work-related stress and illness and injury exists. Methodology: A convenience sample (N=150) was selected. Data collection included demographic variables and a periodic medical history update form. Medical records were reviewed from July 1, 1997 through July 31, 2000. Chi square for relationship was used to test the hypotheses. The hypotheses were supported with significant findings. The positive relationship of both variables indicated an increased risk of illness and injury for the employee. Implications: The area of 'trouble sleeping' has received attention by (NIH) and (NIOSH). This study revealed a positive correlation between the variables. This study found a positive relationship exists between these two variables and increases the risk of injury, illness/absenteeism, and disability.
