Today's industries are investing to digitize the industry for a sustainable future for both man and the environment. IT-stress begins to become a more familiar concept that emphasizes that we humans are affected by IT. Aim: To investigate industrial workers perceived IT-related stress and whether they feel that education received has been appropriate and that their competence development is enough for managing the implementation of industry 4.0. Method: Inductive approach with exploratory goals. A qualitative semi-structured interview was conducted on 6 respondents followed by a manifest content analysis. Result: The digitization generates several aspects that affect the individual and can lead to stress. Conclusions: More research is needed to ensure how implementation of industry 4.0 can be done with reduced IT-related stress
