The instrument used for measuring or to assess the level of stress was adopted from Osipow (1998), based on Occupational Stress Inventory-Revised (OSI-R). 175 respondents have completed the questionnaires. Three main scales that been used in this study are, Occupational Role, Personal Strain and Personal Resources.

A second scale Personal Strain- includes 4 sub-scales, Vocational Strain (VS), Psychological Strain (PSY), Interpersonal Strain (IS), and Physical Strain (PHs). Meanwhile, third scale is Personal Resources- includes 4 sub-scales, Recreation (R), Self-care (SC), Social Support (SS) and Rational/cognitive Coping. From the analysis, the level of work stress at ACM showed the workers have a normal stress level, except for male under the sub-scale category ( Role Ambiguity - RA) which showed strong stress level compared to the female workers.
