A study by the Institute of Collective Health at UFBA points out that the biggest fatal victims of work accidents involving motorcycles in the country are men, between 25 and 39 years old, workers in the industry or in the business and services sector. The subject will be the theme of the webinar “Work accidents involving motorcycles in Brazil, 2007-2018”, on August 25 (Tuesday), with live broadcast, at 9 am, through the ISC channel on Youtube ( youtube. com / labvideoisc ).

The event is promoted by the ISC / UFBA Integrated Program in Environmental and Worker Health (PISAT) and the DSASTE / SVS / MS General Coordination of Occupational Health (CGSAT).

The objective is to disseminate knowledge about the extent and severity of motorcycle accidents at work, to encourage the development and establishment of protection policies for these workers in Brazil.
