Objective: To identify the understandings of sugarcane workers on the contribution of ergonom-ics in the prevention of low back pain. Understanding that knowledge of issues pertinent to this field is fundamental, members of Uninassau’s academic health and safety union have held talks with sugarcane cutters. Results: These professionals seek in the cane cut a way to support their families. We believe in the potential of each sugarcane cutter that participated in an active and collaborative way during the activities. Starting from the qualitative and descriptive approach of this experience report, we find methodological subsidies in oral history, as a way of listening and dialoguing with the subjects during the conversational wheels. Considering the purpose of the study, several lines were observed during the wheels. Conclusion: They indicate that although cane cutters understand ergonomics as a relevant element in the prevention of postural con-straints and consequently the prevention of pain in the lumbar before, during or after their work activities, their understandings about the working environment in the cut do not seem to have any impact in consolidating a broader and more critical formation.
