Abstract: Cross sectional epidemiological study aimed to assess the work ability of workers at a telecommunications and information technology company. The Work Ability Index (WAI) developed by Finnish researchers was used along with a questionnaire dealing with lifestyle and sociodemographic data. The study comprised 173 subjects, 60.1% male, average age 42.2 years, 78% married, 72.8% college graduates, 13.9% held a second job, 69.4% exercised regularly, only 12.1% were smokers and 50.3% drank alcoholic beverages. Medically diagnosed diseases were reported by 66.5%. Light mental illness was the most frequent. Among the interviewees, work ability was moderate (9.2%), good (42.2%) and excellent (48.6%). The logistic regression model pointed out that workers who do not get physical exercise run 2.5 times more the risk of having a moderate/good WAI.
