The cost management in Health of the workers of the companies and the management of Health and Safety of the Work for the eSocial of the Polo Industrial of Cubatão are between the two themes of the 33rd Meeting of the Doctors of the Industries of Cubatão (Emic), on October 26, starting at 8 am, at the Center of Integration and Development (Cide).

For the coordinator of the Technical Committee of Medicine (Commed), doctor Marcelo André de B. Olmos Hernandez, Emic “is an event that maintains tradition and always seeks innovation in its programming. There are 33 editions that reflect well the importance of Commed’s performance in the Industrial Pole of Cubatão over the years. We always seek to discuss current and relevant issues not only for Occupational Health, but also for professionals in segments that interact directly with the Health area”.

The first apresentation will be made by the leader of Health Management of Latin America of GE Brazil, Dr. Marcia Agosti. The main objective is to give visibility to doctors working in the industrial sector of the Cubatão region on the role of the corporate health area as critical observers of the quality and effectiveness of health care services offered to workers and sponsored by the industries. And to evaluate the sector’s concern with the sustainability of the health system with the current care model, given the increasing costs and the perception of effectiveness and added value to the beneficiaries of the system.

Marcia Agosti hopes that the topic will generate “a deep discussion about the strategic position of the corporate health area as a client and observer of the effectiveness of care and the value added to the well-being of employees and their families in the scenario of transformation of the supplementary health system”.

In the evaluation of the leader of Health Management of Latin America of GE Brazil, “we are experiencing a moment of profound changes in the health system. For decades we have been analyzing information and publications about the inverse evolution between the effectiveness of the care intervention and the increasing costs of the system”.

It therefore considers that the collaborative meeting of all participants in the health system will be the driving force behind the transformations required to ensure a public health system that is effective in health care and effective in preventing, treating and rehabilitating functional consequences of illness.

“The integration of the various participants in the health system is the key to directing the balance of the system to people, turning their attention to their well-being, their perception of being well, their commitment and co-responsibility for their health as well as with the individual choices extending the days of well-being and full functional capacity and to the work “. In this sense, the search for health services that demonstrate an effective contribution to a constructive, effective and resolutive assistance experience, according to the demand of the group of users that compose the public to be assisted, should be stimulated, since for the doctors of the work this is an important moment”. And for Medicine, it’s a victory”.

The meeting, organized by Cide and the Technical Committee of Medicine (Commed), will bring together Occupational Medicine professionals and related areas such as Human Resources, Legal, Work Safety, Social Assistance, among others.

Emic has the support of the Center of Industries of the State of São Paulo (Ciesp) -Regional de Cubatão and sponsorship of the São Francisco Xavier Foundation – Usisaúde. The Center for Integration and Development (Cide) is a non-profit association created more than 20 years ago. It brings together large associated companies in the base segment in an Industrial Condominium in Cubatão, responsible for the manufacture of high quality raw materials, whose representativeness is significant in Brazil.


The challenges for the implementation of the system

Claudio Patrus will show companies the main interactions between health and safety events in eSocial

Cláudio Patrus de Campos Bello, a specialist from Sesi (National Department – Health and Safety Unit), will conduct the second theme, which will explain the procedures of the platform, care with the Health, Occupational Safety and other areas that are contemplated.

The objective of the apresentation is to show to the industrial companies of the region the main interactions between Health and Safety events in eSocial (Federal Government Digital Bookkeeping System) and the challenges that companies will face with the implementation of the system by the government.


“The volume of data and procedures involved in meeting the determinants of eSocial require employers to make a great effort to adapt management processes, involving integration of areas, partnership, investments in computerized systems and hiring of qualified suppliers”.

The expectation of the doctor is to sensitize the professionals involved with eSocial in the companies on the subject, and to show how Sesi has been working to assist him in these challenges.

“Mindful of the reality and demands of the national industry, Sesi created an innovative health and safety management platform for health promotion and work, Sesi Viva +. The technology solution provides gains for the industry and for the workers by concentrating the management of data in a unique environment. The unique environment of health and safety data, and the Brazilian worker’s lifestyle, enables the generation of qualified and structured information, as well as epidemiological studies to support the industries in reducing legal risks, reducing costs with health and accidents, and increased productivity at work”,he adds.

Support from Sesi 

Sesi will provide companies with a system with all legal programs parameterized as required by eSocial, encompassing modules such as occupational hygiene, ergonomics, risk analysis, health and safety at work.

The doctor points out that, like most professions, Health and Safety professionals are currently in a transitional period and need to adapt to the requirements of industry 4.0 as well as to the profound changes of the future of the work in the face of the digital revolution.

“The skills required of employees will change and consequently the impact on the careers of workers. As work is being modified the risks to health and safety will also be”.

Entries are still open at the Ciesp-Cide regional office in Cubatão.
