The present work has the objective of proposing solutions that can adapt a joinery in the municipality of São Gonçalo to the current legislation, which concerns Occupational Health and Safety, having the main goal of providing safe and healthy conditions for workers. The methodology used was divided into two stages: Documentary survey and object recognition and characterization, using techniques such as unsystematic observation, interviews and questionnaires. In the final part of the research, the results of the methodology were presented and the criticality points of woodworking related to Occupational Health and Safety were identified so as to propose improvement projects that meet the employees’ needs inserted in the context of the factory, in order to contribute to a healthier, safer and more comfortable working environment.
