1. Nascimento, Cristiane Araújo. Avaliação das condições de trabalho dos fumicultores no município de Arapiraca-AL : contribuições para o estudo sobre percepções de riscos nos trabalhadores rurais expostos a agrotóxicos.

Degree: 2011, Universidade Federal de Alagoas

The use of products used against pests and diseases present in agriculture is not new. Ancient civilizations were using chemicals to kill pests on crops and stored foods. This practice has intensified since 1930 with the Industrial Revolution and the development of chemical industry. In Brazil the use of pesticides began in the 1960s, and since then has been observed an increasing consumption over the years, which currently places the Brazil the largest consumer of pesticides in the world. Improper use of these substances, especially by the rural population, shows up as an important risk factor for human health and the environment. In Arapiraca, an important center of tobacco producer in Brazil, the cultivation of tobacco is notable for excessive use of pesticides at different stages of production. This consumption is contributing to the occurrence of diseases in workers, mainly by inadequate working conditions and disregard for safety standards. Based on this observation, we characterized the working conditions of tobacco farmers in the city of Arapiraca. This is a descriptive transversal study of 134 rural workers using who were interviewed using a semi-structured questionnaire to obtain information about the work process. The results showed that most of the workers interviewed had aged 28-37 years (24.6%) were illiterate or incomplete undergraduate (79,1%). This study also found that most respondents was composed of owners of land (38.06%) or employees (24.63%) and who took 1 to 10 tasks in the property (55.97%) for planting; as most common task performed was the action of planting (25.91%) and apply the pesticide (18.27%). As to information received about pesticides, 26.87% workers reported their importance to kill pests, which is primarily an information transmitted by their relatives (30%). Among the most widely used pesticides, the Decis was cited by 26.6% of workers, followed by Confidor (19.56%) and Karate (14.76%). Regarding access to pesticides, 51 workers (38%) performed the product purchase, the majority of workers (67%) did not use an prescription agronomic. The most frequent activity was spray (94.77%). For disposal of empty containers, workers were most common procedure such as burying and burning, which together account for a practice adopted by 52.24% of the workers. Regarding the use of protective equipment, only 76 workers (56.72%) reported using some type of protective equipment, and the boot protective equipment most used (25.28%). Even with low adhesion to the protective equipment, (95.52%) workers believe that the pesticides are capable of causing damage to health, with headache the most frequent symptom. Taken together, the results of this research reveals that rural workers involved in tobacco farming are permanently exposed to pesticides due to several factors, such as intensive agricultural activity, the mishandling of pesticides and lack of perception of risk to which they are exposed, probably due to low education and lack of technical guidance for the proper management of… Advisors/Committee Members: Barreto, Emiliano de Oliveira, CPF:04552293761, Barreto, E.
