ALONCO, Airton dos Santos; MEDEIROS, Camila Ardais; MEDEIROS, Fabrício Ardais  and  WERNER, Valmir. Work ergonomic assessment on the activities developed with brush cutter mower. Cienc. Rural [online]. 2006, vol.36, n.5, pp. 1638-1642. ISSN 0103-8478.

This research work was aimed at evaluating the operation with a brush cutter mower, because they are more and more used in rural and urban environment. Besides, it tried to demonstrate - through the field operational analysis - that many of the operation procedures are non-conforming to operational human health and safety regulation norms. This work alerts workers and employers on the work hazards and/or occupational diseases, suggesting more appropriate ways to execute these tasks.

Keywords : agricultural engineering; agricultural machines; ergonomics.
