Identifying hazards from human error is critical for industrial safety since dangerous and reckless industrial worker actions, as well as a lack of measures, are directly accountable for human-caused problems. Lack of sleep, poor nutrition, physical deformities, and weariness are some of the key factors that contribute to these risky and reckless behaviors that might put a person in a perilous scenario. This scenario causes discomfort, worry, despair, cardiovascular disease, a rapid heart rate, and a slew of other undesirable outcomes. As a result, it would be advantageous to recognize people's mental states in the future in order to provide better care for them. Researchers have been studying electroencephalogram (EEG) signals to determine a person's stress level at work in recent years. A full feature analysis from domains is necessary to develop a successful machine learning model using electroencephalogram (EEG) inputs. By analyzing EEG data, a time-frequency based hybrid bag of features is designed in this research to determine human stress dependent on their sex. This collection of characteristics includes features from two types of assessments: time-domain statistical analysis and frequency-domain wavelet-based feature assessment. The suggested two layered autoencoder based neural networks (AENN) are then used to identify the stress level using a hybrid bag of features. The experiment uses the DEAP dataset, which is freely available. The proposed method has a male accuracy of 77.09% and a female accuracy of 80.93%.
