Resumen This report is an analysis of about 200 documents (ergonomic studies, reports, manuals, conventions, safety rules, standards). The introduction examines the effects of new information technology, the influence of trends in the humanisation of work and its support in law (in the Federal Republic of Germany), the man-machine system, and the various types of video terminal workstations. Present ergonomic knowledge concerning workplace design covers: the screen, output formatting, the keyboard, the keys, the table and chair used with the terminal, copy-holders and footrests, the location and environment of the workstation within the office. Other aspects treated: physical, visual and psychic stress, work organisation, length of work periods and breaks, medical examinations. A glossary, list of relevant safety rules and standards and a summary of ergonomic data are appended.
