Resumen A questionnaire survey was conducted among 249 university clerical workers. Data on 13 visual complaints, four musculoskeletal complaints and headache were tabulated, together with data on the number of hours per day and days per week spent on work with video display terminals. In terms of use per day, there was a significant difference between the prevalence of complaints among non-users and users of VDTs, but no difference between light-use (1-3h) and heavy-use (4h or more) groups. In terms of weekly use, visual complaints increased with intensity (1-2 days, 3-4 days and 5 days or more), but an elevated prevalence of musculoskeletal complaints was seen only in the 5+ day group). The relation of complaints to workload is discussed.
