To improve intervention measures in workers' health involves the adoption of approaches aimed at implementing inspection of the workplace, using ethical interventions with impact on the Brazilian Health System. Instruments include risk assessment, information flows, and identification of workers' morbidity and mortality characteristics. Such measures are planned with four operational bases: trade unions, production sector, sentinel event, and microregion, establishing a new dynamic relationship between epidemiological investigations and health interventions aimed at changing the work process associated with occupational injuries and diseases.
