Need for Recovery from work
Too high a workload causes stress reactions and fatigue. The fatigue must not be greater than that you should be able to recover fully from a day’s work before the next working day starts. A high Need for Recovery from work can be an early signal of a prolonged period of sick leave or ill health, such as cardiovascular disease.
High workloads have different causes, such as having to perform a large number of work tasks or the work being emotionally demanding. Feeling that you can do a good job (Quality of work) is important to health. The same applies to the ability to interrupt work and take breaks (Recovery opportunities).
