PEREIRA, Maristela de Souza. Precarious Work Processes and their Effects on Brazilian Workers' Illnesses: A Case Study. Gerais, Rev. Interinst. Psicol. [online]. 2018, vol.11, n.2, pp. 208-220. ISSN 1983-8220.

This article discusses the outsourcing processes and flexibility of labor relations, whose practices are linked to the precariousness phenomenon, analyzing how these processes act in a perverse way on the workers, promoting their illness and generating impacts of various orders on them. As a concrete scenario to promote this reflection, the text presents a real case concerning the contamination of Brazilian workers by nickel carbonate, a substance of high toxicity, and the consequences of this accident on the men involved.

Keywords : Occupational health; Occupational accident; Outsourcing; Social Psychology; Nickel.
