A questionnaire measuring work characteristics and subjective reports of health was submitted to workers from Eastern Europa, Marocco, Ghana and Italy. Results confirmed the main effects of work characteristics on psychophysical health and the job type and ethnicity. Occupational sector and country effects suggested significant effects over the relationships between each work-related stress dimension and psychophysical health.
