AQUINO, Cassio Adriano Braz de et al. Outsourcing and worker health: a review of the national literature. Rev. Psicol., Organ. Trab. [online]. 2016, vol.16, n.2, pp. 130-142. ISSN 1984-6657.

The objective is to discuss vulnerability in the working world based on outsourcing and worker health, through a literature review of Brazilian scientific papers between 2010 and 2015 in the databasesof, BVS-Psi, and CAPES Theses and Periodicals, with the following descriptors: work, outsourcing,and health. To this end, the categories considered were: number of authors, publishing vehicle and author region,nature of the research, type of data handling, knowledge area of the publication, and degree areas of the authors.Viewed from the context of insecurity, which pertains to most of the workers, the treatment given to the issue ofoutsourcing could be seen, understanding it as a process that took on grand proportions in bringing vulnerability towork, having an impact on worker health.The number of publications falls short given the relevance of outsourcingand its relationship to worker health. It is noteworthy that the Southeast has the largest number of publications(78.78%), as well as of authors from educational institutions of this region (78.94%). It was noted that most of thetexts (68.42%) were confined to qualitative data analysis. Moreover, it is in the area of public health that the articlesfocus more, while only two were published in journals in the psychology field. We intend to not only highlight thatthe academic production on the subject of outsourcing is in line with the health category, but also to expound onthe involvement of psychology with that theme, assigning due importance to multidisciplinary studies.
