This study is aimed at figuring out the stress of workers in the field of railroad electricity and vehicles and its convergence factors. The workers were divided into the workers in the headquarters and in the field. A self-administered survey was conducted from February 9 to March 6 in 2015. 628 respondents` reply was analyzed by PASW Statistics Ver. 18.0. As the result, 94.7% of them belonged to the over weight group and frequently drank alcohol. The stress score was higher in the workers in the headquarters(3.00/5.00) than those in the field(2.85). For the workers in the headquarters, those who smoke everyday showed higher stress level than that of those who have never smoked while stress level decreased in those who are satisfied with their company life. For the workers in the field, stress increased in the higher age group than those in their the twenties and those who skip their breakfast. The more positive their subjective awareness toward their body shape and the more satisfied they were with their company life, the more their stress level decreased. Therefore, the study suggests that we have to focus on those who are vulnerable to stress using the factors.
