BATTISTON, Márcia; CRUZ, Roberto Moraes  e  HOFFMANN, Maria Helena. Work and health conditions of urban public bus drivers. Estud. psicol. (Natal) [online]. 2006, vol.11, n.3, pp.333-343. ISSN 1678-4669.  https://doi.org/10.1590/S1413-294X2006000300011.

The purpose of this study was to characterize work and health conditions of urban bus drivers of Florianópolis, Brazil, using as principal support the contributions derived from Environmental Psychology, Working Psychology and Ergonomics. Observations were made at work site, routes and of driver's behavior throughout the route. Twenty-one drivers were interviewed and the lines were used as a resource for the qualitative analysis organized in analytical categories. It was concluded that the driving activity is consuming, causes fatigue and its efficacy is mainly related to environmental factors from the work site and the way the drivers deal with it. Organic (head soreness, leg soreness and hearing problems) and psychic (as stress, irritability and fatigue) disturbs affect not only the driving activity but also the social and community life of this professional.

Palavras-chave : drivers; work conditions; worker's health; work psychology.
