The aim is to show that the design of organizational structure can be enhanced through debates about work among profession-specific collectives and through the development of relations between several professions. We are carrying out several ergonomic interventions in projects with multidisciplinary teams working in occupational health departments. We shall present two cases of occupational health departments whose contexts, in terms of multidisciplinary team composition are different. The interventionrelated difficulties encountered during organizational design projects based on collective activity lead us to question future methodologies.
