This paper examines the existence of work intensification amongst school teachers by using a multidimensional survey comprising psychological and physical dimensions. Findings suggest a perception that intensification, as measured by variables such as hours worked, effort, work pace, duties and responsibility, has increased. Analysis found differences between gender, age, teaching level and other workplace characteristics. Overall, male teachers aged over forty experienced the highest work intensification.
