Abstract This study was undertaken at the São Paulo University Nursing School (EEUSP), in order to identify the working hazards of general services staff at EEUSP. It is based on the perception of their actual work processes. Considering the elements of the work process, physical, chemical, biological, mechanical, and psychological loads were analysed. It is concluded that the most frequent and relevant loads are psychological and mechanical in nature, due to the way the work is organized, as well as to the equipment and instruments used by the operational technicians at EEUSP.
