The common sense for work has been punishment, wear or exploitation, which has been changing in recent years thanks to academic and business investments in the search for improvement in the relationship between men and their work activity. This reorganization of thinking and attitudes towards work is motivated by the search for a quality of life associated with environmental and ergonomic comfort that seek as a primary objective to diminish or eliminate the appearance of occupational diseases arising from activities related to the performance of a labor function. In this sense, the term environmental comfort and ergonomic denote the interdisciplinarity among several factors such as conditions of work environment, family, previous psychosomatic conditions or acquired throughout the life in order to obtain a correlation that allows the worker sufficient knowledge to produce quality of life and a natural satisfaction in the development of their activities. The present work specifically addresses the activity of educational professionals, both administrative technicians and teachers, in the environment of the Federal Institute of the Minas Gerais Triangle Mineiro Campus through the application of a technique known as Ergonomic Analysis of Work - AET. This technique consists of the use of interviews and physical analysis of the environment (IBUTG, noise and illuminance) through measurements standardized by Regulatory Norms 17 and 15 of the Ministry of Labor. It was noticed that in general the condition of the servers is satisfactory, however that there is also an ignorance regarding ergonomics by administrative technicians and teachers. It has been shown that furniture in general is out of the recommended standards and that as far as physical variables measured only the temperature is outside the standards recommended by the standard. For a deeper analysis it is necessary if the study is applied over the years for a better understanding of the activity. (English) [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
