description Work absenteeism is related to medical causes and such diseases might be related to the occupation of the worker. The staff working in forensic institutions is considered at biological risk by exposure to factors such as infectious agents. The aim of this study was to characterize the absenteeism by infectious diseases in a forensic institution of Cali, Colombia. Methodology: Descriptive, cross-sectional conducted in a human resources database with 179 medical disabilities by infectious disease of a Forensics Institution of Cali, Colombia during years 2011 and 2012. We collected sociodemographic and work related data such as age, sex, educational level, occupation, job position, length of employment, working hours, disability length and workplace. Disabilities were classified into less than 3 days and more than 3 days. Infectious diseases were classified by systems: respiratory, gastrointestinal, skin, and others. Results: More than half (50,6%) of the studied population had medical absenteeism by infectious diseases. Most of them (58%) related to respiratory diseases. Women were slightly more affected (56%) and the most affected job positions were those related to forensic procedures with a 73% of absenteeism. The workplace with the highest absenteeism was pathology (23%). We found a statistically significant relationship between age and absenteeism due to infectious disease. Conclusions: The forensic institution staff is highly affected by infectious diseases of respiratory and gastrointestinal origin, so generating a high volume of disabilities.

El ausentismo laboral puede estar relacionado con causas médicas y estas pueden tener su origen en la ocupación del individuo. El personal que labora en las instituciones forenses se considera a riesgo por su exposición a factores biológico como los agentes infecciosos. El objetivo de este estudio fue caracterizar el ausentismo laboral por enfermedad de origen infeccioso en una Institución Forense de la Ciudad de Cali (Colombia). Metodología: Estudio descriptivo, de corte transversal realizado una base de datos de 179 incapacidades médicas por enfermedad infecciosa en una institución forense de la ciudad de Cali, Colombia durante los años 2011 y 2012. Se determinaron variables sociodemográficas y laborales como: edad, sexo, escolaridad, oficio, cargo, antigüedad laboral, jornada laboral, tiempo de incapacidad y área laboral. Las incapacidades se clasificaron en menor e igual a 3 días y mayor a 3 días. Las enfermedades infecciosas se clasificaron por sistemas: respiratorias, gastrointestinales, de piel y otras.

Las mujeres presentaron mayor ausentismo (56%) y el oficio forense presento la mayor prevalencia de ausentismo (73%). El área de patología presento el mayor ausentismo con un 23%. Se encontró una relación significativa entre la edad y el ausentismo por enfermedad de origen infeccioso. Conclusiones: El personal de la Institución Forense está altamente afectado por enfermedades infecciosas de tipo respiratorio y gastrointestinal generando alto volumen de incapacidades. 2013-06-01 2019-03-19T16:17:16Z 2019-03-19T16:17:16Z http://purl.org/coar/resource_type/c_6501 http://purl.org/coar/version/c_970fb48d4fbd8a85 https://revistas.unilibre.edu.co/index.php/rc_salud_ocupa/article/view/4859 http://hdl.handle.net/10901/14891 spa https://revistas.unilibre.edu.co/index.php/rc_salud_ocupa/article/view/4859/4145 Revistas - Ciencias de la Salud http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/2.5/co/ Atribución-NoComercial-SinDerivadas 2.5 Colombia application/pdf Universidad Libre Revista Colombiana de Salud Ocupacional; Vol 3 No 2 (2013): Revista Colombiana de Salud Ocupacional; 12-17 Revista Colombiana de Salud Ocupacional; Vol. 3 Núm. 2 (2013): Revista Colombiana de Salud Ocupacional; 12-17 2322-634X
