||This literature survey reviews studies related to work with visual display units and associated risk factors for upper limb disorders. It firstly describes the analytical model and methods used and goes on to present data on work organization, stress, psychosocial factors, biomechanical demands and the spatial layout of the workplace. These data are then summarized and the occupational safety and health implications are discussed. Risk factors include: stress, psychosocial factors, static posture, certain joint positions (particularly at the wrist and shoulder), and the frequency and duration of demands.
