Title: State Control In Health And Safety At Work And The Audit Of The Control Program Occupational Health Medical [o Controle Estatal Em Saúde E Segurança No Trabalho E A Auditoria Do Programa De Controle Médico De Saúde Ocupacional]
Abstract: To reduce the social consequences of the risks inherent in the work, the States shall establish rules, which require the employer to control the occupational health of workers. In Brazil, these actions are to be arranged in the Medical Control Program of Occupational Health in accord to which requires Regulatory Standard 07. To ensure compliance with this standard, both State and the employer can audit the Programa de Controle Médico de Saúde Ocupacional (PCMSO - Occupational Health Medical Control Program). The objective of this study was to verify the applicability of this audit within the Brazilian model of state control in occupational health and propose criteria for its realization. For this it was made a narrative review of the literature. The results indicated that the rules, punitive and remedial, and supervision, timely and repressive, fail both in reduce spending on work-related diseases as well as to encourage voluntary compliance. They also indicated that the current state control measures (increase in tax, easing of workers' compensation insurance rate and programmatic oversight) follow the control model adopted by many developed countries. However, unlike these countries, Brazil yet does not have incentives for adoption of Management Systems Health and Safety at Work, that should include an audit of PCMSO, with results may be used both by the company to improve their occupational health management as the State to encouraging the adoption of Occupational Health and Security Management Systems to reduce spending on work-related accidents and diseases.
