NORMAS DE ENGENHARIA E SEGURANÇA DO TRABALHO: PROTEÇÃO DO TRABALHADOR E RESPONSABILIDADE SOCIAL DA EMPRESA

Ana Cláudia Pires Ferreira De Lima, Vanderlei Ferreira De Lima

Abstract


The Brazilian Constitution requires from the employer the duty to promote the reduction of all the risks that affect employee´s health in the workplace (physical, chemical, biological, psychological etc.). The simple violation of any of the legal or regulatory provisions which establish the employer duties regarding safety, hygiene, occupational health and the work environment, creates the presumption of employer's guilt by the accident occurred, when there is injury with causation. Besides the fulfillment of the engineering and safety standards, for protection and reduction of the risk of accidents, it is necessary to train employees to use the Personal Protective Equipment, as well as require and enforce the use of them, including under penalty of dismissal for serious misconduct of the employee who refuses to do it. Compliance with engineering and safety standards is vital to the health of the employee, as well of the company.
