Cortisol concentrations in parotid fluid have been shown to be possible indicators of physiological stress. Since this type of stress causes a worker to become fatigued and thus reduces his effectiveness it would be useful to measure this stress. The most difficult part of this method is finding a chemical procedure for measuring the cortisol concentration. With the simple methods presented in this paper the cortisol concentration can be measured routinely.
