||This study analyses work incapacitation as a result of musculoskeletal disorders in a cement factory in Spain. The study involved all 743 workers (596 men and 147 women) employed in the enterprise in 1996 and was based on the analysis of work incapacitation certificates. During that year, 81 workers suffered from an osteoarticular disease involving loss of work time, the most frequent being lumbosacral pain (46.9%). No relationship was found between the incidence of these disorders and other occupational factors observed at the place of work. However, there was a significant relationship with previous occurrences of the disorder.
