DELGADO GARCIA, Diemen et al. The over time effects of work relocation on the quality of life in mine workers with silicosis in the Andean division of Codelco, Chile. Med. segur. trab. [online]. 2011, vol.57, n.225, pp.339-347. ISSN 1989-7790.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4321/S0465-546X2011000400008.

Objective: To determine the effects over time of work relocation and the quality of life of mine workers diagnosed withsilicosis in the Andean division of Codelco, Chile. Materials and Method: Quantitative study of temporal series ina single group. The SF36 questionnaire was applied to five workers diagnosed with silicosis, three months before relocation and three months after job relocation. The evaluations were monthly. The statistical analysis was done using ANOVA for repeated measures in SPSS and complemented with the Friedman test. Results: We observed that in all three measurements beforethe job relocation, the 8 dimensionsof the SF36 declined steadily, with no significant difference (f> 0.05) among the study subjects. However, after the redeployment, the dimension of body pain, vitality and social function showed significant differences (f <0.05) among the study subjects. Conclusions: Workers showed changes over time in quality of life, with respect to job relocation, although there was no statistical significance in mostof the dimensions that were measured during the relocation process.
