Materials and Methods: descriptive study and analysis of information from single affiliation records, processed in SPSS. Descriptive statistics, mortality rates and trend analysis will be used. Results: The tendency in occupational mortality has decreased, 81% of the variability in the occupational mortality cases has been explained by its relation with age. Conclusion: The health projects, programs, and policies should reflect follow-up and monitoring of promotion programs in the occupational health area.
