Introduccion: The work accident rate is in several occasions a complex process in wich divers safety factors take place, inherente to the job /profesión as well as external circumstances (organization, climatology, etc) Objectives: To describe the tendency and factors wich are linked to the occupational Hazard, admitted toa cute hospital in Madrid during the 2005-2007 triennium and its relations with meteorology and environmental pollution. Methodology: Ecologic study. Occupational injuries admitted in the accident and emergency department at the University Hospital "La Princesa" in Madrid were analysed Turing the 2005-2007 triennium. The variables analysed were calendar variable, climatic and levels of environmental pollution. A descrptive and univariant study was carried out under the assumption of a Poisson regresión. The measure of association was relative Risk with its Confidence Interval Applet at 95%. Results: The tendency is stabillized but weaning in 2007. Heat is a risk factor, temperaturas above 25 Degress Celsius increases the work accident rate by 19%. Atmospheric pressure behaves as a protective effect. However, the variables for contamination weren't significant. Conclusion: During 2007, work accident rate atended in the accident and emergency department at the Hospital has diminish. Occupational Hazard is related to high temperaturas and atmospheric pressure.
