Objective: To determine the social-occupational factors associated with cardiovascular risk in a population of workers of healthy private health insurance company in Lima, Peru. Methods: A cross-sectional study of secondary data from the data of workers who were seen in an institution as part of their occupational examinations. The Framingham score was used to determine the risk of having a cardiovascular event at 10 years. This score was also analysed along with other social and occupational variables were taken and shown in two populations (< 30 years or ≥30 years, according to score criteria). Statistical association was determined using generalised linear models. Results: Of the 4,134 workers examined, 71.4% (2,950) were men, and the median age was 35 years (range 18-73 years old). More than two-thirds (39%, 1,613) of workers had a low risk to minimum risk. In the multivariate statistics on those < 30 years: Male gender (adjusted prevalence ratio [aPR]: 7.53; 95% CI: 7.01-8.09) and body mass index (aPR: 1.02; 95% CI: 1.01- 1.04) increased the frequency of cardiovascular risk. For workers ≥ 30 years: Male gender (aPR: 2.78; 95% CI: 2.41-3.20), the body mass index (aPR: 1.01; 95% CI: 1.001-1.014), the notsingle marital status (aPR: 1.14; 95% CI: 1.08-1.21) and being an administrative worker (aPR: 1.06; 95% CI: 1.01-1.13) increased the frequency of cardiovascular risk. Conclusions: There are some social-occupational factors that influence cardiovascular risk. These results can be used for occupational medicine, proper monitoring, and improving lifestyles in the workers.
