ANXIETY LEVELS IN STRUCTURAL ENGINEERS
Main Article Content
The objective of this work is to analyze the anxiety levels of civil engineers dedicated to structural engineering. The research is a quantitative approach with a non-experimental, descriptive, transversal, and correlational design. We worked with a sample of 56 civil engineers, the Zung Self- Rating Anxiety Scale (1965) and a sociodemographic survey were applied. The results show that 57.1% of the sample have normal anxiety, and 42.9% moderate anxiety. According to the hours of work per day, 14.3% of the participants present moderate anxiety with work shifts from 15 to 17 hours. In addition, in the range of 12 to 14 hours, 21.4% of the participants present moderate anxiety, which indicates that long working hours tend to influence the anxiety levels of engineers.
