Abstract: This is a cross-sectional study, carried out in a metallurgical industry in the state of São Paulo, Brazil, aiming to identify the demographic profile, health aspects such as body mass index, hours of sleep, smoking, alcohol consumption and lifestyle of the workers. We interviewed 182 workers who answered a questionnaire with socio-demographic, lifestyle and health. The majority was male (75.8%), with a mean age of 33.8 years, did leisure activities (88.5%) and did overtime (72.5%). Physical activity was referred by 55% of the workers, 17.6% smoked and 59.3% reported drinking alcohol. The investigation of health and work aspects is important in order to implement prevention and protection measures related to work and the personal life of each worker.
