OSORIO, Claudia. Collective Analysis of Work Accidents: the worker as protagonist of the analysis of occupational accidents. Cad. psicol. soc. trab. [online]. 2008, vol.11, n.1, pp. 111-120. ISSN 1516-3717.

The Collective Analysis of Work Accidents device aims at analysing accidents and to propitiate the increase of the professions' vitality. We used it during two years in a public hospital, searching to perfect it and observe the effects it rendered. The method is based on the theory of the clinic of activity. It consists in conducting the worker to recreate the situation of the accident, transporting himself to the position of observer of his/her work. The worker is invited to show how the accident came about and the work analyst presents him questions about his choices as to the possible ways, interruptions occurred and others. The pair accidented worker-analyst registers in a diagram the succession of events, privileging the accidented person's experience. Group discussions on several accidents are then held. The results show that the device effectively transports the worker to the position of co-analyst of their work, shattering crystallizations that hinder the development of the professions which compose the health team.
