The question of work safety is a fundamental and necessary one. Safety in the workplace for ourselves and those around us is very often conditioned by aspects which can be previously defined. They can be resolved by the application of a series of preventative measures, and if these measures are not taken, our daily activities in the workplace can result in our health being put at risk.

This study aims to detect the work risks in a health centre. The methodology used consisted of preparing a risk map.

The specific risks linked to each area of a health centre have been observed; this can be one of the starting points which, together with preventative measures training, can help us and the various professionals who work in health centres to ensure that our working environment is a sanitary one in which we can carry out our activities.
