FONSECA, Giovanni Campos; LIMA, Francisco de Paula Antunes  and  ASSUNCAO, Ada Ávila. Tacit knowing transmission: the difficulties of the teaching/learning process in a self-managed cooperative. Rev. bras. saúde ocup. [online]. 2004, vol.29, n.109, pp.45-53. ISSN 0303-7657.

In this paper, we present an ergonomic action in a cooperative of products of leather and synthetics material, specially shoes and sacs. We focus on the process of tacit knowledge transmission between an associate expert and the others associates, all of them novices in this work. In conclusion, we present the basis to compare ergonomic action in cooperative organizations and ergonomic action in traditional enterprises, and point out the obstacles to promote effective cooperative organizations.

Keywords : tacit knowledge; social economics; practical knowledge transmission.
