SILVEIRA, Renata Cristina da Penha; SILVA, Flávia Mendes da  y  RIBEIRO, Isabely Karoline da Silva. Occupational profile and exposure of solid waste collectors from a Brazilian municipality. Rev. Enf. Ref. [online]. 2018, vol.serIV, n.17, pp.73-84. ISSN 0874-0283.  http://dx.doi.org/10.12707/RIV17079.

Background: The working conditions of solid waste collectors (SWC) expose them constantly to occupational risks. Objectives: To describe the occupational profile and exposure of SWC from a municipality of Minas Gerais, Brazil. Methodology: A quantitative, cross-sectional, descriptive study was conducted with 43 SWC from a municipality of Minas Gerais, Brazil, in 2015. Results: This group of workers is mostly composed of young men in a stable union, with a low level of education, who reported being satisfied with their work, despite claiming to be often exposed to occupational risks. Conclusion: There is a need for interventions focused on the workers' health, which include actions to promote health and prevent risks and injuries among these workers.

Palabras clave : solid waste collection; solid waste segregators; garbage; work; occupational health.
