||This study describes health services use by workers reporting occupational injuries. Data were obtained from a community-based cohort study on health and work that started in the year 2000, involving workers from 2512 randomly-selected families in the city of Salvador, Brazil. A total of 628 occupational injuries were reported during the twelve months prior to the study. The majority (71%) of injured workers received medical treatment in facilities of the unified health system (SUS), a public health care system providing universal coverage. Around 15% received treatment from private health insurance plans. Among SUS users, most had no formal job contracts, although their services were also used by insured workers. Other findings are discussed.
