The Health & Safety Executive define stress as "the adverse reaction people have to excessive pressure or other types of demand placed on them".
Pressure is part and parcel of all work and helps to keep workers and managers motivated. However, it is excessive or uncontrolled pressure which can lead to work related stress and make people ill. The effects of occupational stress can lead to physical symptoms of ill health, such as heart disease, as well as longer term psychological damage.
