The quantitative descriptive method of research was used. A total of 68 respondents were selected as respondents using convenience sampling technique. The researchers conducted a survey using the quantitative method with the aid of a questionnaire. Mean, frequency, percentage, standard deviation, t-test and f-test were used as statistical treatments in the analysis of the gathered data. From the findings, the following conclusions were drawn: (1) Majority of the respondents were found to be above 30 years of age, male, married, with a monthly income of P15,000 and below and a length of service of 1-5 years; (2) Majority of the radiologic technologists working in selected hospitals in Cavite were found to seldom or sometimes encounter occupational stressors in terms of their status and pay, physical environment, job demands and social interaction. However, the specific stressors affecting the said respondents were revealed. The respondents were found to be generally unaffected or slightly affected by the given occupational stressors, but some respondents were found to disagree or strongly disagree with some of the given ideal work-related statements; (3) There was no significant difference in the respondents’ identified stressors when they are grouped according to gender and length of service. However, there was a significant difference in the evaluation of the certain stressors when the respondents were grouped according to age, civil status and monthly income. In particular, there were significant differences in the comparison of status and pay in terms of age, civil status and monthly income. Significant differences were also found in the comparison of physical environment and general evaluation of occupational stressors. It was also found that there was a significant difference in the general evaluation of occupational stressors in terms of age.
