Abstract
In an overview of the high-speed railway systems in various countries, train drivers are the last line of rail safety. With the rapid increase in transportation demand, failure to promptly formulate appropriate coping strategies and implement adjustments imposes severe job stress on train drivers. Therefore, examining the job stress of train drivers has become a critical field of research. In the present study, 5 influential factors of total quality management (TQM), man, machine, material, method, and environment, and the SHELL model (i.e., software, hardware, environment, and liveware) were used to establish an evaluation system comprising 18 key indicators to measure the job stress of train drivers. Subsequently, extension engineering and the decision of an expert panel were used to determine the relative weight of each indicator and develop a rated classical domain model and an overall rated neighborhood domain model. By calculating the association between job stress indicators and their evaluation rating, the researchers confirmed the job stress ratings for individual train drivers. Finally, the feasibility of the evaluation method proposed in the present study was verified through testing.
