CLOT, Yves. Work as a service of health. Cad. psicol. soc. trab. [online]. 2013, vol.16, n.spe, pp. 1-11. ISSN 1516-3717.

The text discusses the present work conditions in which the so called "psychosocial risks" become worries for the work management. Some criticism is presented to the ways the issue has been dealt with by French enterprises, proposing other ways out, based on the clinic of activity. It concludes by the importance of taking care of work in all its instances: impersonal, transpersonal, interpersonal and personal. It is each professional's responsibility towards their colleagues to maintain the work's architecture in contact with the surprises of reality, sustaining it by the means of continuous questioning of the quality of work. Health at work might spring from this.

Keywords : Clinic of Activity; Craft; Psychosocial risks.
