[Ergonomy and mental health at work.].

[Article in French]

Abstract

In the last ten years the concepts of health and mental health have been considerably modified and mental health at work is becoming an important interest of the <<specialist>> in this field. However, it is difficult to establish with certainty the cause and effect between work and mental health problems since many other factors could possibly be responsible for the onset of those problems. Since work constitutes the principal activity of the human being it is reasonable that it could affect its mental equilibrium. Ergonomy deals with the person at work with the aim of better adapting the work to his needs, capacities and aspirations.
