Abstract This report is the outcome of a project that was developed to serve as a basic framework for the longitudinal observation of potential health hazards of VDU operators. It sets out criteria for the characterisation of the possible health effects caused by computerisation, the location and description of the work tasks which caused the health effects, the location and description of the operators affected and the establishment of the time when the health effects were produced. Three checklists for the investigation of the state of health of the VDU operators are appended.
