FERNANDES, Maria da Paz Medeiros  e  SILVA FILHO, Luiz Carlos Pinto da. Safety in the workplace in beneficiation of CDW inert. Ambient. constr. [online]. 2015, vol.15, n.2, pp.113-126. ISSN 1415-8876.

A large quantity of construction and demolition waste (CDW) is generated during building construction and other related activities. The challenge is to reduce these volumes. To induce change, the national environmental council (CONAMA) of Brazil has published resolutions 307/02, 384/04, 431/11 and 448/12. Nonetheless, aspects related to Health and Safety in the handling of CDW have been oversighted. With the aim of contributing to overcome this gap this research used a case study approach to analyse multiple examples of recycling areas in Belo Horizonte, municipality that has the best track record in management of CDW in the country. The data collection done between 2009 and 2014 through the analysis of indirect sources, A direct data collection exercise was done in 2011. After the analysis of the evidence registered, it was confirmed the initial hypothesis that H&S setups in CDW recycling areas need to be better studied, improved and controlled. The expectation is that the results presented in this paper can help subside proposals for improvement in CDW management schemes in other municipalities, especially regarding H&S issues.
