||This article presents a systematic analysis of the hazards associated with working in call centres. After identifying the general hazards associated with office work, it goes on to focus on the hazards associated more specifically with this type of work, such as mental workload, work organization and working conditions, as well as working at screens, with a keyboard and a mouse. Proposals are made for the ergonomic layout and organization of the workplace. A series of measures are proposed, aimed in particular at improving working conditions in call centres, preventing mental workload among operators, making their work easier and limiting errors.
