Resumo

Were analyzed the working conditions in a small feed mill, with identification of occupational risks (physical, chemical, biological, ergonomic and accidents) and measurement of noise levels. Data collection was performed qualitatively by using a survey, previously developed, as well as in loco observation. There was at least one factor belonging to the five occupational risks, and the ergonomic risk was associated with all activities. The feed mill assessed was not in accordance with the Regulatory Standards related to Health and Safety, and arrangements to adjust it accordingly must be taken. Corrective actions goes from the purchase and supply of appropriate personal protective equipment for worker to structural changes, such as installing handrails and repairing of electrical installations. These initiatives, if implemented could contribute to reducing the risks that affect the health and physical integrity, with opportunities to improve quality and productivity of the services performed.
