Resumen The increasing use of visual display units (VDUs) calls for an examination of the health risks faced by operators. This article is the result of a review of all studies, research and surveys which have been carried out to date on the subject. The main themes covered are risks during pregnancy, skin disorders, visual disorders, musculoskeletal system disorders and stress. Findings for each of these topics are summarized. Judging by most recent data, the screen itself poses no threat to operators. However, using screens under unsatisfactory conditions does contribute to the onset of health disorders. This information sheet updates the Note No.1613-126-87 abstracted under CIS 87-1102.
