Abstract This booklet aimed at construction industry workers in Brazil explains in an easy-to-understand form the main provisions of NR-18, a new occupational safety and health regulation developed with the active participation of workers' representatives, employers and the Ministry of Labour. Under the new regulations, workers are considered responsible citizens, aware of their rights and expected to speak up. The booklet illustrates a number of situations covered by the regulations including working at height, transport to and back from the construction site, personal protective equipment and facilities (accommodation, drinking water, eating rooms, toilets, showers and rest facilities).
