Mental stress due to automation


The introduction of automation has certain psychological repercussions on those involved, and in some cases these may set off reactions affecting mental health. Two types of reaction can be distinguished: first, emotional reaction to the introduction of an essentially new technological method and in particular to the anticipation of possible consequences of the innovation; second, the reaction of the person who, confronted by new working and living conditions, is exposed to physiological and psychological strain.
