Abstract An important role in the medical sector is for employees, who perform processes of manual and semi - manual processing of medical devices (washing and disinfection). Great attention is focused on these processes, in order to satisfy the purity standards which ensure avoiding infection of patients with various diseases during the use of necessary medical devices. Target of this scientific research is to extend, systematize and improve theoretical knowledge as well as to make a research about the influence of physical and chemical risk factors on the health and safety of workers during the manual washing and disinfection processes of medical equipment and to work out suggestions in order to minimize such factors.
