||This statistical study, based on interviews, involved 585 bank employees in the State of São Paulo, 88 (15%) of whom were tellers. When compared with bank employees as a whole, tellers had a statistically significant increase in health problems in general, and in the incidence of gastrointestinal, musculoskeletal, eye and repetitive strain problems. Among the preventive methods suggested: more rest breaks; limitation of working time at tellers' workstations to 3h at a time; limitation of work load (expressed in terms of number of verifications registered at the computer terminal); improved ergonomic conditions.
