This contribution presents the main results of a research aimed at interpreting the relationships between organized work and workers' health in a clinical analysis laboratory. The analysis has been carried out in the biomedical laboratory of the Desio hospital, by adopting the Method of Organizational Congruencies. All units operating within the laboratory were studied in detail by means of MOC. The analysis allowed to identify, for each technical action, the typical elements of organizational constraint, and to suggest different organizational choices. It was also possible to plan detailed biomedical analysis to assess operators’ distress and to pre-arrange specific measures of primary and secondary prevention.
