Background: The impact of work stress is generally considered to be harmful to workers' health and costly to society. They seem to affect all categories of workers, including managers. Numerous scientific works agree that stress at work is at the origin of pathologies such as Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSDs) and low back pain, Cardio Vascular Diseases (CVD), depressions, etc. The objective of our study was to assess the stress at work in banking in Conakry. Method: This is a descriptive prospective study of duration of 6 months from June 10th to December 10th, 2017. Results: We conducted a descriptive prospective study of workplace stress assessment in which we recorded 844 workers. The average age of our workers was 37.02 years with extremes of 20 and 72 years, men were the most represented with 561 cases or 66% against 283 women or 34% with a sex ratio of 1.98. Seniority was 7 years with the extremes of 0.038 and 29 years, 51.54% of the workers had a seniority of less than 5 years. Conclusion: Bank employees were stressed at different levels. There is a statistically significant relationship between stress level and stressors. The assessment of the factors intrinsic to the work situation would certainly make it possible to analyze the impact and possible corrective and preventive measures.
