Aims: Psychological stress at workplace plays an important role in employees' well-being and performance. The prevalence of suspected employees suffering from psychological stress and factors influencing it was studied at a major regional manufacturer of tiles in Kashan, Central Iran, where employees often struggled with the harsh working conditions. Materials and Methods: This cross-sectional study was conducted on all 263 male employees of a major regional manufacturer of tiles in Kashan using both General Health Questionnaire-28 and demographic questionnaires. SPSS software (version 16) was used to analyze the data corresponding to descriptive and analytical statistic tests. Results: The frequencies of mental disorder, sleep disorder and anxiety, social function disorder, as well as depression and physical symptoms were found to be 52.3%, 52.8%, 75.7%, 12.8%, and 48.3%, respectively. There was a significant relationship between anxiety with work tenure and work shift, depression with income level, and general mental health with work shift and income. Conclusion: The results show that psychiatric disorders in this industry are significant, so implementation of prevention and treatment programs is of great importance for improving production and performance of workers, especially in high-risk groups.
