Abstract Aim: To describe the profile of workers with spine cord diseases attended in an Occupational Health Service. Method: A quantitative study with documentary analysis of open records of patients attended at the Occupational Health Reference Service (CEREST), in Santos-SP, and record selection of subject with clinical diagnosis of M50 to M54 according to the ICD-10. Results: We analyzed 431 records of patients from both genders, most affected age between 41 and 50 years, and 15.7% (n= 68) were diagnosed with M50 to M54 according to the ICD-10. The most affected professional category was 'other activities services', with 24.6% (n= 16).
