Abstract Background:The cost of stress related diseases like storks, hypertension, and depression is very high and absenteeism, disability and preterm death duo to them threaten the productivity. So interaction between stress and cardiovascular disease must be cleared. Methods: This research was done on the 224 male workers of a transportation terminal in Tehran.

Results: 0.4% was in low stress category, 17% in low-moderate, and 78% in moderate-severe and 4.5% in severe stress category. There was no statistically meaningful correlation between stress and FBS, TG, CHOL, pack years of smoking, BMI. There was only a weak correlation between job stress and diastolic blood pressure.
