FONSECA, Betânia Moreira Cangussu; BRAGA, Ana Maria Cheble Bahia  y  DIAS, Elizabeth Costa. Planning occupational health interventions in the territory: a participatory experience. Rev. bras. saúde ocup. [online]. 2019, vol.44, e36.  Epub 13-Dic-2019. ISSN 2317-6369.


the social determination of health/disease process is made operational through the organization of health care services in the territory. Interventions on the conditioning factors, risk and workers’ health impacts can be made by observing - with historicity and mobility - the dynamics of human activities and risk situations materialized in a given territory.


to contribute to the reflection on the importance of the territory in the implementation of the Workers’ Health National Policy, using it as an instrument for planning intervention.


participatory intervention research adopting the Arc Method and discourse analysis; a workshop for territory diagnosis was carried out aimed at organizing the workers’ health intervention actions.


the workshop involved 13 professionals from different areas, and identified the informal work and the environment/work process of the civil servants as priorities for intervention. The perception of the main risk factors and workers’ health problems led to proposals on occupational health interventions.


territorial analysis was considered a powerful instrument to plan and undertake actions leading to worker’s health promotion, prevention and integral attention.
