O Fator Acidentário Previdenciário como instrumento epidemiológico de controle de riscos do trabalho
Corrêa Filho, Heleno Rodrigues;
Revista Brasileira de Epidemiologia , 2005, DOI: 10.1590/S1415-790X2005000400012
Abstract: this report discusses the validity of a brazilian ministry decree that establishes standards for calculating a multiplying factor for accidents and social security. the index estimates the frequency, severity and costs to be accounted for in tax calculation. it multiplies tax rates due to work risks and may reduce by up to 50% the taxes due by companies that apply efficient collective methods for disease prevention. the method is analyzed for its consistency in selecting groups of morbidity used as a mean to build frequency, severity and cost burden vectors. the validity of the application of epidemiologic concepts to the economic activity that generates the specific morbidity is also assessed. the discussion addresses the antagonism between the concepts of traditional morbidity lists and the mobile epidemiologic criteria usually adopted to solve conflicts on the existence of a causal link amongst diseases, lesions, accidents and means of production. the floating groups of morbidity that reach significant 99% confidence intervals for epidemiologic risks above the null value _ 1.0 _ are supported. the conclusion is that the method is in accordance with epidemiologic requirements, as long as a systematic review panel assesses aspects of sensitivity and specificity. a warning is presented not to rely solely on methods as unilateral means of social action for evaluating, controlling and preventing the diseases associated with the means of production that are inherent to our social development. methods are instruments that ought to be considered in decision-making and in the desired political action.

Abstract: this study evaluates the decentralization of workers' health surveillance to district teams in campinas, s?o paulo state, brazil, from 1990 to 2006. the history and context of this process were retrieved from documents at the municipal health department in order to establish evaluation criteria and define facilitating factors and obstacles in guideline implementation, as well as to measure the gap between guidelines and reality. the evaluation used qualitative techniques with stakeholders' focus groups. the results showed that decentralization was defined according to the prevailing political options and according to the principles of the unified national health system (sus). facilitating factors included the increase in technical capability and integration among the teams, and obstacles included excessively centralized planning with limited participation, insufficient resources, and lack of clarity between the services concerning roles and responsibilities. the discussion of these results with health system administrators, social actors, and participating health professionals has contributed to the analysis and organization of transformative measures in regional public practices in workers' health surveillance.

Abstract: abstract objective: the purpose of this study was to analyze the implementation of workers' health and epidemiological surveillance services at the primary healthcare units (ubs) of the brazilian unified health system (sus) in campinas, s?o paulo, brazil. method: qualitative and quantitative methods were combined to yield a parallax approach to the research object. work-related injuries and diseases recorded in 2006 were selected to investigate whether ubs conducted surveillance actions and if preventive and protective changes had occurred in work processes and environment. professionals in charge of workers' health surveillance in the units were interviewed. results: the study showed that healthcare and disease notification were successfully implemented, mainly those with the purpose of reporting work injuries. nevertheless, poor recognition was given to the causal links of workrelated diseases; they were dealt bureaucratically, and their epidemiologic relevance for decision taking was neglected. informal workers did not receive specific attention. administration of local health units still demands specific protocols to establish their role in integrating information systems to workers' health surveillance in primary care level. conclusion: decentralization of workers' health service was only partially implemented in the primary healthcare units in campinas.
