Construction

The building construction sector which is mainly made up of micro and small companies registers high levels of work accidents. This sector is characterized by several risk factors, such as working at heights, moving loads, handling machinery and work equipment, the presence of dust and other hazardous chemicals, improper posture, noise and vibration, as well as adverse weather conditions. Accidents usually occur due to unsafe conditions and / or actions. This tool aims to contribute to an improvement of working conditions in the building construction sector, as it allows for an assessment of existing risks and suggests measures to be implemented to control these risks and produces an action plan to be implemented at the workplace.

O setor da construção de edifícios apresenta níveis de sinistralidade laboral elevados sendo constituído fundamentalmente por micro e pequenas empresas. Este setor é caracterizado por vários fatores de risco, destacando-se o trabalho em altura, a movimentação de cargas, o manuseamento de máquinas e equipamentos de trabalho, a presença de poeiras e outras substâncias químicas perigosas, posturas inadequadas, ruído e vibrações, bem como, a condições climáticas adversas. Os acidentes ocorrem geralmente devido a condições e/ou atos inseguros. Esta ferramenta visa assim contribuir para uma melhoria das condições de trabalho no setor da construção de edifícios, pois permite efetuar uma avaliação dos riscos existentes, sugere medidas a implementar para o controlo desses riscos e, produz um plano de ação a ser implementado nos locais de trabalho.
