The safety and the work organization in a coal subterranean mining of the region of Criciuma - Santa Catarina State, Brazil; A seguranca e a organizacao do trabalho em uma mineracao subterranea de carvao da regiao de Criciuma - Santa Catarina

Abstract

The subject of this thesis is related with work organization and working conditions in the conventional mining system used in underground coal mining. An exploratory study was conducted in a mining company located in Criciuma, Santa Catarina state, Brazil. The objective was to know how tasks were performed and which organizational and technical factors affected the safety of the workers. The study of work organization and working conditions has traditionally been a meeting ground for contributions from a variety of disciplines such as engineering, sociology, psychology, occupational medicine, and so on, and for that reason there are different approaches. Therefore one can expect some controversies over the matter. Although there are many controversies and methodological difficulties to establish causal relation with the risks observed in the production process, under many circumstances the work organization affects the working conditions and the performance of the workers. Working conditions are still a problem which needs solutions with new approaches, mainly concerning work organization alternatives, which can satisfy not only enterprises but also better working conditions.
