||The objective of this study was to assess the health impact of working on visual display units (VDU) for the data entry of medical files at a social security and health insurance organisation in Morocco, together with the possible effects of this health impact on service quality. VDU workstations were analyzed in relation to current standards (ISO 9241, EU directives, etc.) by physically measuring workstation parameters. Risks and problems caused by VDU work for the operators were assessed by means of an epidemiological survey. This work enabled the detecting of workstation layout problems both in terms of ergonomics and work organisation factors. These problems affect employee health and safety (eye, vision and musculoskeletal disorders). Implications of these findings are discussed.
