Abstract: Brazilian swine production is an important activity for the agribusiness, and even though the use of technology in various segments of this activity allowed mechanization of processes, intensive labor is still needed. Swine worker is exposed to several risk factors during their activities, among them the exposition to noxious gases. The present research had as general objective to evaluate gases concentration (NH 3, CO, CO 2) and wind speed during the workers activities. It was found that the gases concentration (NH 3, CO, CO 2) are within the limits recommended by NR15 (1978) and CGIH (2001). Gases concentration values found were low besides ammonia concentration found in G1 farms inside the nursing housing during the morning (10 ppm) that is within the recommended value. Inhalable dust concentration values found were within the limits established by the norms ACGIH (2001), NR-15 (1978) and NIOSH (1994) in both houses, and there was not statistical significance between them.
