Abstract

This study shows what employees in the Environment, Health and Safety (EHS) area within private Brazilian companies think about the relationship between ergonomic risks and Homogeneous Exposure Groups (HEG). Thirty-seven professionals from different market segments answered a questionnaire via Google Docs. The results show that 75.6% of the companies sampled use HEG in order to map occupational risks. Within those companies, 54% include ergonomic risks in their HEG, which has negative consequences to both employees and employers in these companies.
