Background: Given the importance of maintaining the mental health of workers, the present study was conducted to determine the effect of the individual factors on hypochondriasis and job stress under the corona epidemic condition in a company.
   Methods: This cross-sectional study was performed on 275 workers in 2020 in one of the industries in southern Iran. To gather the data, demographic, researcher-made, standard hypochondria, and job stress questionnaires were sent electronically along with a guide and study objectives. The participants completed the questionnaires during 2 weeks and send them electronically to the research team. Finally, data were analyzed using tests of one-way ANOVA and linear regression in SPSS software version 22.
   Results: The results showed that the mean score of hypochondriasis in different groups of variables, including age, work experience, use of personal protective equipment, corona experience, and attention to preventive measures was significantly different (p<0.05). Based on the results, the mean score of job stress significantly differed in different groups of variables of personal protective equipment use, corona experience, and awareness on corona (p<0.05). Moreover, based on the regression relationships, hypochondriasis could be predicted by variables of personal protective equipment, corona experience, awareness on corona, and attention to preventive measures; and job stress could be predicted by variables of awareness on corona and attention to preventive measures.
   Conclusion: Regarding the importance of providing the physical and mental health of employees, the implementation of measures to reduce stress and hypochondriasis of employees, particularly in identified groups, is helpful.
