Abstract An analysis of the literature and the authors' own experience. The most frequent ergonomic shortcomings in video terminal workplaces are mentioned. The effects of radiation and electric and magnetic fields are not responsible for health impairments or fatigue. Parameters are given for good alpha-numeric symbols, arrangement of keyboards, modification of documents, dimensions and shape of work tables and seats, lighting, climatic conditions, limitation of noise level and organisation of work and rest schedules.
