Trabalho e saúde na indústria têxtil de amianto

The morbidity and mortality rates of workers at an asbestos plant in Rio de Janeiro reveal the great harm caused by this raw material, which is prohibited in many countries but used in others, such as Brazil, due to economic and political interests. The definition of a full life implies a reality in which the act of working does not lead to sickness and death. Ideally, working should be a healthy activity, and the workplace should provide a space for workers' creativity and freedom.
