This paper presents the findings of an ongoing INCDPM project developed in collaborations with BB Computers that addresses the occupational safety issues related to computer equipment installation, maintenance and use, with emphasis on risk identification. The method used was The Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic reviews and Meta-Analyses (PRISMA). Using the chart flow and the list of items of this method, a literature search was conducted in Science Direct Freedom Collection, Elsevier database, Web of Science - Core Collection, Springer Link Journals. Keywords such as occupational risks, computer equipment installation, computer maintenance were used to retrieve relevant studies which explicitly reported on occupational risks related to computer equipment installation, maintenance and use. The literature search yielded 900 references, of which 20 articles were selected for full-text screening as specified by the inclusion criteria, and ultimately 10 were included in this review. It was developed an extensive and comprehensive list of occupational risks related to computer equipment installation, maintenance and use. After a classification of the equipment in calculation and processing equipment, electronic displays, printer, special printers network equipment the main risks identified in all categories mentioned above are as follows: electric shock, stress, high workload, slips and trips.
