Overweight and obesity are the most frequent problems in the working population.

Objective:

Determine the influence of overweight and obesity with absenteeism due to common illnesses.

Material and Methods:

Analytical cross-sectional study, secondary bases of results of occupational medical examinations and medical breaks were used. Simple and multiple regression analysis was performed using generalized linear models.

Results:

Of 649 participants, overweight represented 44.2% and obesity 19.1%. The variables that show a statistically significant influence (p <0.05) with work absenteeism are gender, job, having a pathological personal history, anemia, musculoskeletal alteration, alteration in the urine test, hearing loss and nutritional diagnosis. The male gender decreased the frequency of absenteeism by 51% and obesity increased the frequency of absenteeism in the short and long term by 35%.

Conclusions:

An increased frequency of short-term and long-term absenteeism was found in female workers and in those with obesity.
