Aims: To demonstrate and to report on the views of Physical Education (PE) teachers of the Fluminense Federal Institute (IFF, in Portuguese) about biological natural disasters; to identify and to describe the risks of misfortune in sport trips; to implement, through distance learning, a permanent education in health (PEH) system regarding biological disasters for the PE teachers of IFF, based on the risks found in sport trips. Method: This is a descriptive, exploratory study, with a qualitative approach, using field research, in terms of which PE teachers will make up the target population. The data will be collected in October 2014 from a bibliographical research and from recorded semi-structured interviews. The content will be analyzed according to the ideas of Bardin.
