CARLOTTO, Mary Sandra et al. Occupational health psychology in Brasil: An integrative review. Aletheia [online]. 2017, vol.50, n.1-2, pp. 143-153. ISSN 1413-0394.

The study is an integrative review of scientific articles published in Brazil about Occupational Health Psychology between 2001 and 2012 in two journals in the field of Organizational Psychology of Work available in Pepsic database: Cadernos de Psicologia Social e do Trabalho and Revista Psicologia: Organizações e Trabalho. Of the 289 published articles, 91(31%) met the inclusion criterion, namely, that one of the variables in the study is situated within the thematic of occupational health. The following categories were used to analyze the articles: year of publication; context; type of study; type of worker; zone of study; region; type of sample, and intervention. It was identified a predominance of articles from a qualitative approach (53%), with operational workers (80%) and with no indication for interventions. Most of the articles are publications from the Southeast of Brazil (37,0%), within the years of 2007 (17%) and 2012 (18%). We point out the need for more studies in the field of occupational health, especially those focusing on quantitative and epidemiological research with representative samples, as well as the inclusion of practical implications.
