Abstract A systematic summary of publications and documentation regarding working environment factors and the state of workers' health in the Danish training and research sector. Teaching is the major occupation in the sector. The main working environment problems for teachers are indoor climate and psychological stress. Other problems are strain injuries (especially those caused by poor working postures) and irritating noise. For pregnant women, the diseases of childhood encountered in schools and nurseries are a risk as they can endanger the foetus. Other occupations have different problems e.g., cleaning assistance and housekeeping have strain injuries and skin diseases. In laboratory work exposure to chemicals and biological agents is common. Some specialized areas of education have problems not encountered in teaching in general.
