Abstract

Nursing professionals who generally work on the front lines of healthcare facilities are daily exposed to various occupational risks, whether they are related to the exposure of chemical and biological agents, ergonomic risks related to repetitive work, as well as psychosocial risks, which are directly related to work organization, management, stressors and other factors that can interfere in the psychological health of these workers. This work has the general objective of verifying the main occupational risks faced by nursing professionals in times of infectious epidemics. The research is an integrative literature review carried out by searching the databases available in the Virtual Health Library and Google Scholar using the descriptors: Nursing, Epidemic and Occupational Risk. It was noticed that during infectious epidemic crises, nursing professionals are exposed to several risks, the main ones being the risk of biological contamination and occupational stress, because in times of crisis workers tend to have greater contact with the patient, as they also act with the constant presence of deaths and illnesses, leading them to develop psychological crises related to work.
