TEIXEIRA, Jules Ramon Brito et al. Use of personal protective equipment for motorcycle taxi drivers: perception of risks and associated factors. Cad. Saúde Pública [online]. 2014, vol.30, n.4, pp.885-890. ISSN 0102-311X.  https://doi.org/10.1590/0102-311X00129913.

This study aimed to examine the practices and perceptions of motorcycle taxi drivers concerning the use of personal protective equipment (PPE), based on field research and an exploratory and descriptive qualitative approach. Thirty motorcycle taxi drivers from Jequié, Bahia State, Brazil, were interviewed. Data collection used a semi-structured interview and questionnaire. Data were analyzed using thematic content analysis. The results showed: Category 1 – risk perception, subcategory conditioning/determinant factors for the use of PPE; Category 2 – adherence, subcategory adherence to the use of personal protective equipment; Category 3 – PPE as a protective factor against traffic accidents, subcategories 1 – work-related accidents, 2 – use of PPE at the time of the accident, 3 – non-use of PPE at the time of the accident. Finally, motorcycle taxi drivers clearly have some knowledge of personal protective equipment and even acknowledge the importance of its use, despite not always using it properly.
