The Civil Construction is an industry that, for its peculiar characteristics, demands permanent attention and fulfilment of the norms of security of the work. The fulfilment of the norms becomes necessary, because of this form they can be reduced, and, in some situations, until eliminated the risks of accidents with workers. When entering in a workmanship, the new employee, would have to receive in its first day from work some Individual Equipment of Protection (EPI), for the accomplishment of its activities. Equipment of Individual Protection all device or product, of individual use used by the worker, destined to the protection of risks susceptible is considered to threaten the security and the health in the work. The such EPIS (s) are: the helmet, the eyeglasses, the auditory protector, the gloves, the boots and two sets of shirt and pants (uniform), etc. the distribution is registered in a fiche of delivery called Caution EPI, where they consist, beyond the name and of the function, the amount, the type of EPI, the number of HERE (Certificate of Approval), the date of delivery and the destined place the signature; it also consists, a called field Declaration, where the employee declares to be cliente of its obligations how much to the use, he keeps and conservation of the Equipment. It sees well what it brings the Norm Regulamentadora de Segurana of the Work Equipment of Individual Protection? EPI: NR 6.6.3. The company is obliged to supply to the employees, gratuitously, adequate EPI to the risk, in perfect been of conservation and functioning.
E, according to art. 157, interpolated proposition I of the CLT, fits to the companies: TO FULFILL and TO MAKE TO FULFILL to the Norms of Security and Medicine of the Work. It orders the law that the employer supplies the necessary equipment of protection to the workers; these, however, most of the time, carry through its displayed labor activities to the most diverse risks of industrial accident, because the employer does not fulfill with obligation to supply the due individual protections. On the other hand, one perceives, that some workers leave to use EPI without justifiable reason, neglecting the imminent risk of the occurrence of an accident. Valley to stand out, that it compels them to the legislation to use the equipment of individual protection. For some companies, it is not interesting to include in its budgets expenses with the security of the work.
In other cases, they supply to EPI of baixssima quality. The fact is that they have a false idea of economy, since, for them the cost ' ' dispensado' ' to a rough worker it is well bigger of what if before it had prevented this accident, a time that falls again on same a responsibility for the physical integrity and occupational health of its employees. What the necessary worker to understand, is that the responsible greater for its physical integrity and the sustenance of its familiar ones is he himself, independent of the obligations of a company with regard to its security. Being thus, already he is in the hour to give to the Security of the Work the had respect. One becomes necessary, to take it more serious giving importance to the Individual Equipment of Protection, not only because a law exists that compels the supply and the use, over all, because the consequencias of one have caused an accident will affect the company in such a way as the worker.
