Attended by 17 representatives of eight companies cuencanas, interested in updating their knowledge on "Management in Occupational Health and Safety." Cuenca companies and the country have shown interest and commitment to comply with worker protection, but the barrier found is resistance to change. The workers are accustomed to conduct its business in a way and when it detects a hazard that requires personal protective equipment (helmet, hearing protection, goggles, mask, gloves, etc..) Cause discomfort.

To address this rejection is necessary for the employer to train them and train them constantly to create a culture of self-care, he said.

Marco Pazmino, head of Occupational Health Safety and Trimmings, attended the seminar, and agrees with the need concientizr the worker, not fines or penalties, but with training, because the benefit is for them and therefore for the industry to be the key part of a company.
