The article highlights the role of high neuro-emotional strain as a factor of health risk for mental work workers. There were proposed new approaches to quantitative assessment of work strain basing on the criteria of «Hygienic Classification of V\brk». The modem literature data were analyzed concerning the effect of work strain on the state of health and there were deter¬mined main nosological types of work-related pathology that might be caused by the effect of that occupational factor. Taking into consideration the world experience in studying occupational health risks and modern methodological approaches a scheme for organization and conducting studies on detection and assessment of risks caused by the effect of mental work strain was recommended.

Key words: work strain, occupational stress, health, occupational risk, method of detection
