  Aims: Occupational stress is a common and money consuming problem in the workplace nowadays. Stress is highly experienced among drivers due to the nature of the job and environmental factors. This study was performed with the aim of comparing the occupational stress in military and non-military drivers in Tehran.

  Methods: This descriptive analytical study was performed on 202 drivers of selected municipal areas and military centers of Tehran who were selected by proportional sampling method in February 2009. O sipow job stress questionnaire was used for collecting data. Data was analyzed by SPSS15 software using descriptive and analytical statistical methods including Chi square test.

  Results: The mean age of drivers of military and non-military drivers were 43.28 ±8.63 and 40.49±8.78, respectively. The rate of occupational stress showed a significant difference in two groups in two domains of inefficiency and role range (p<0.05), but the total job stress score didn’t show a statistically significant difference.

Conclusion: Occupational stress is moderate or even severe among both military and non-military drivers in some domains, but the total stress score doesn’t have a significant difference in two groups. More comprehensive studies are needed in this field in order to reduce the amount of stress and its consequences.
