Abstract Building actions related to health and safety in small and medium size enterprises (SME) is not an easy task, since these companies need to face lack of information, short availability of resources and methodologies developed for the characteristics of a big company. The present study investigates the way health and safety interventions - including ergonomics - are carried on in three industrial sector SMEs in Brazil, but also the reasons for their being conducted that way and the difficulties encountered.
