The objective of this work was to classify the factors that may generate a risk of asthenopia among the researchers of the ITCJ, as a result of reading with VDT, thanks to the work of a focal team. A descriptive study was done. Twelve research professors participated: their age ranking between 25 to 55 years. The methodology used was of quality and participation nature (focusing on emic). The following activities were carried out: brainstorming from an investigation question, ranking and classifying the information, analyzing and interpreting data and determining the categories. The research participation techniques used were brainstorming and focal group. The risk factors identified by the focal team were: screen brightness, exposition time, lighting, type of monitor, size of screen, font type, font size, reader posture, colors used, quality of text printing, human factors and amicable software. The proposed categories by the participants were: equipment, material, environment and people. The main conclusion unfolds the rescuing of the strength displayed by the participation techniques in the investigations towards explaining any problem, and the abundance of knowledge of the group of people. In this work, we have accomplished the classification of factors that cause visual problems, by the general consensus of the participants which coincides with international literature; furthermore, it shows the practicability of using the focal group technique in explaining an ergonomic problem related to labor health.
