Several natural disasters involving mass movements have occurred in Santa Catarina and Brazil. One of these caused a large number of fatalities, social and economic damage were those that occurred in the middle valley of the Itajaí River in November 2008. However, landslides continue to occur and provisions should be adopted. This paper aims to describe the contingency actions during emergency works related to a landslide, which occurred at a slope besides BR-376 Highway (Guaratuba / PR) and Transpetro right-of-way in March 2011. The landslide affected the highway concessionaire and Transpetro operations. This site was stabilized by emergency works, including an anchored wall, which is shown and described in the work. This paper records the emergency works taken and lessons learned.
