Workers exposed to noise intensity above 85 decibels

Noise tops the list of risks to which workers in the country are exposed, whose intensity in the working environment is "above 85 decibels," the Occupational Safety and Health Centre (CSST) announced this Tuesday.


The information was transmitted to Lusa by the CSST's General Director, Isabel Cardoso, when she took stock of the actions of the first quarter of 2020, mentioning that in the period the institution visited almost 500 jobs.

According to her, between January and March 2020, the public institution visited 458 jobs and identified various risks, including physical, chemical, biological or psychosocial, present in the working environment.

"And noise predominates here, in other words, there's a worker's exposure to this factor above what is acceptable by law, above 85 decibels," said Isabel Cardoso, expressing her concern about the situation.

During the first quarter of this year, the CSST attended 90 companies and 2,414 workers who carried out 5,041 examinations, including health surveillance, admissions, periodicals, dismissals, return to work, re-evaluations, among others.

The Centre for Safety and Health at Work, based in Luanda, is a body overseen by the Ministry of Public Administration, Labour and Social Security.
