Resumo

Este estudo buscou verificar qual o efeito do aumento da concorrência
de importações chinesas nos acidentes e doenças do trabalho no Brasil no período de 2000 a 2016. Para isso, utilizou-se o método de variável instrumental, bem como um conjunto de efeitos fixos e variáveis de controle para captar o efeito de interesse. Os resultados obtidos demonstram que o aumento da concorrência de importações chinesas aumentou os acidentes e doenças do trabalho no Brasil em 2000-2016. Além disso, setores com menor número de empregados apresentam um maior efeito da concorrência de importações chinesas nos acidentes e doenças no trabalho.
