||Office automation and new ways of working are aimed at improving work performance; however, they can also cause the appearance of various symptoms, in particular headache, fatigue and exhaustion, as a result of the cumulative effect of several environmental and organizational factors. The main constraints of office work, whether physical (sitting posture, work at screens, use of laptop computers) or mental (concentration, attention, performance, coping with stress and motivation) are discussed, and practical guidance is provided for reducing or avoiding these constraints and improving work organization and ergonomics.
