A work accident took the life of a 35-year-old male on the afternoon of Wednesday, the 21st, around 3 pm. The fatality happened in a disposable company in São Ludgero. The victim was a native of Maranhão, worked for more than a year at the company and left his wife and two children.

The equipment was used to process recyclable plastic material, used in the production of roof tiles for civil construction.

The president of the Chemical Workers Union, Carlos de Cordes, known as Dé, reported that this is the third professional in the chemical sector who died in the southern region of Santa Catarina, in a period of 55 days, as a result of an accident at work. “We found out about the accident this morning, and when we arrived at the company, around 12:30 pm, the place where the incident took place had already been inspected by the Civil Police the day before and the metallic equipment had already been removed”, he explains.

The company’s management, shortly after the accident, interrupted production throughout the plant and dismissed the approximately 80 employees until 1 pm on Thursday, the 22nd. At around 12:30 pm, Dé accompanied by union directors and legal counsel met with the owner of the company, assisted by lawyers, executives and a representative of the employers’ union. As a result, as proposed by Carlos de Cordes, all workers were dismissed until Monday, the 26th, when production will resume. “Employees, for the most part, are shocked by the accident and, fortunately, our proposal was accepted”, said the union president.

Before moving to São Ludgero, de Cordes made contact with the regional manager of the Ministry of Labor and Welfare (MTP) Cássia Gava, communicating what had happened and urgently requesting an investigation at the scene of the accident. “He is the third worker in our category to have died in a short space of time. We are very concerned,” she emphasized.

Before the employees were released, the company’s management prepared a tribute to the dead worker, whose body has already been removed to Maranhão. Then, President Carlos de Cordes, met with the workers, demonstrated the concern of the board and expressed the board’s solidarity with the victim’s family and the category.
