Abstract

SAURIN, Tarcisio Abreu  and  RIBEIRO, José Luis Duarte. Segurança no trabalho em um canteiro de obras: percepções dos operários e da gerência. Prod. [online]. 2000, vol.10, n.1, pp.05-17. ISSN 0103-6513.  https://doi.org/10.1590/S0103-65132000000100001.

The objective of this paper is to make an evaluation of how safety is perceived by people who should deal with it in a construction site. A qualitative approach was used to collect and analyze the data. Nine interviews were performed, including an engineer, a foreman, a consultant and six workers. Based on the description and the analysis of the interviews it was possible to understand their perception about nine issues: reasons for accidents, suggestions to improve safety, job satisfaction, training, main risks at work, main priority, work load, frequency of small accidents and near-misses, and level of safety awareness. Their perceptions uncover the need of managerial improvements, which may directly or indirectly contribute to improve the safety in the work site.

Keywords : safety; construction; qualitative research.
