MORAES, Thiago Drumond et al. Considerations on the profession of bus driver in Brazil: a literature review. Est. Inter. Psicol. [online]. 2017, vol.8, n.1, pp. 76-99. ISSN 2236-6407.

The effects of driving buses craft to the health of drivers have been investigated in nationwide Brazilian studies. To deepen of this object of study, we conducted a review of Brazilian researches on this profession, to investigate the health-disease and subjectivation processes, from 2000 to 2012 by thematic verification. From this research, we draw two analysis axes: the effects of this profession on health of bus drivers and its conditions and organization. The survey was conducted under theoretical approach of Ergonomics of Francophone activity and it was also guided by the prospect of Ergology. Physical dimensions of health are more researched than psychological ones. We conclude that, in spite of investigating the health of workers, their working conditions and activity are not sufficiently considered: we propose ways to new studies, especially regarding work activity, approaching including its positivity.

Keywords : work activity; bus drivers; health; mental health; subjectivity.
