The unprecedented aviation growth, in the past few years, has posed various challenges for the aviation industry globally. One of the biggest challenge is the occupational stress for the personal working in the high demand environment. The long term exposure to high stress is affecting the health of the personal severely, leading to conditions like hyper-tension, diabetes, low energy level, headaches, upset stomach, aches, pains, tense muscles, chest pain, rapid heartbeat, insomnia, frequent colds and infections etc.

Many studies have been conducted in the past regarding stress development process and interventions like Interventions on the external socio-economic environment, on technology & work organization, working place and task structure, improving individual responses &behavior and by health protection and promotion etc. Stress in the aviation industry is a common phenomenon composed of three sources, which are physiological stressors, psychological stressors, and environmental stressors.
Changes in work shifts and trans-meridian flight result in asynchrony between aviation personal’s circadian rhythms. This lack of synchrony results in shift-lag syndrome (due to changes in work schedule) and jet-lag syndrome (due to trans-meridian flights) severely affects the body clock specifically Airline Pilots, Cabin Crew, Air Traffic Controllers and Air Passengers.
