How stressful are security guard jobs?

I accepted a job as a security guard for the first time. It is new to me. I will be working a 4pm-Midnight shift walking around a chemical plant and watching cameras of different areas of the plant. Is this job high stress, low stress or medium? I currently work 40 hours a week in retail in a high stress environment and I am hoping this job will be less intense.
