Abstract

This study shows an integrated approach on working and environmental risks that are strictly related. The application of the Method of Organizational Congruencies had shown that hospital work need a heavy reorganization taking into account health care workers especially nurses, patients and the community to satisfy the Ottawa charter (1986). The high level of organizational constraints for nurses, mostly females, due also to hospital waste production, show the importance of a new management hospital policy based on a better distribution among gender, profession, shifts and community for waste treatment.
