DIMOV, Tatiana  and  NOBREGA, Juliana da Silva. Workers health in self-managing enterprises. Cad. psicol. soc. trab. [online]. 2014, vol.17, n.1, pp.129-142. ISSN 1516-3717.

In order to understand workers health in factories managed by the workers themselves, this paper brings a review of academics studies about self-management, sociology of work, psychology of work and workers health. In worker-controlled factories, workers can actively participate in choices related to production, and although the pace of work is guided by capitalism, they can make their own decisions regarding the conditions that rules the rhythm of work. However, problems related to occupational illness may exist in different contexts from that of the traditional factory work. The benefit of self-management is the ability to collectively change how to work in order to pursue collective welfare.
