Summary: The demand for higher productivity, complexity of tasks, time limitation, among others, can cause tension, fatigue and exceed the professionals cognitive resources, resulting stress at work. The persistence and intensity of stressors experienced by the worker in the workplace of the oil industry may result him vulnerable to the beginning of Burnout Syndrome. Objective: Determine the intensity of stress, burnout, the stressors of oil industry workers; analyze the correlation with sociodemographic and work variables and develop an educational booklet for occupational health nurses. Methodology: Exploratory, descriptive, field study, with quantitative approach, cross-sectional design, performed with oil industry workers from a municipality in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The data were collected through self-applicable forms: sociodemographic and work variables; Occupational Stress Scale and Maslach Burnout Inventory. Results: The sample was characterized by male participants (79.8%); in the age group up to 30 years (49.4%), with extremes of age of 19 and 63 years; monthly income of 2 to 4 minimum wages (43.8%); developing work activity in the Operational sector (52.8%) and Administrative (47.2); with "up to 2 years" of time in the function (44.9%); stress intensity Moderate/High (74.2%), the items P14 (mean = 2.69) and P21 (mean = 2.46) of the scale had the highest stress means, compared to items P17 (mean = 1.46) and P4 (mean = 1.61) with lower means. Stress correlated with income (p-value 0.005) and time on function (p-value 0.018) with an emotional exhaustion high level (52.8%), which correlated with age (p-value 0.033), administrative sector (p-value 0.004), and time on function (p-value 0.041). It was identified 72 stressors at work, included in the categories working conditions (52.77%); Interpersonal relations (44.44%) and Professional recognition (2.77%). Conclusion: It's evident that oil industry workers have a high intensity of stress at work and the chronic stress is evidenced by the emotional exhaustion of this worker. The results found corroborate with findings from other studies that indicated the importance of identifying the stressors, data of great relevance for the implementation of actions in health by the occupational health nursing, aiming at favoring the planning of interventions for the prevention diseases, health promotion and worker well-being.
