The analysis revealed factors that have an adverse effect on human health: artificial lighting (I =0.72); standing activity (I=0.63); monotonous movements (I =0.56); prolonged work at the computer (I =0.55). It was found that many pharmacy workers have chronic diseases: vascular pathology (29.4%), musculoskeletal pathology (28.4%), gastrointestinal tract pathology (27.5%); visual impairment (27.5%). It was found that 20.6% of pharmacy employees do not have breaks for rest and meal; 13.7% do not have the opportunity to take warm food at work; 35.3% have the biggest meal of the day in the evening. In the workplace, a set of factors that have an adverse effect on the health of pharmaceutical professionals has been identified; many workers have work-related chronic diseases; most pharmacists experience discomfort after work; some employers violate labour legislation by not providing specialists with breaks for rest and meal.
