    It's fine. Normally, it would read, "The way he does his work worries me." Your line is turned around but not wrong. I'd add a comma though, because of the "It," which becomes the subject noun and (I think) makes the second part a dependent clause. I'm not a grammarian, though, so let's see if anyone else here would add the comma.

    the way = the manner in which = the method by which
