Of these, 19% were classified in the range of harmful alcohol consumption. It is noteworthy that 35.2% (n=139) of workers mentioned the use in binge and 26.5% (n=105) consume alcohol two to four times a month. These variables were statistically associated with gender, religion and educational level. In addition, a negative correlation was identified between the AUDIT score and the "fatigue" factor of the mood scale. In the end, it was observed that male individuals and those with less education were more likely to consume alcohol in the harmful pattern. Conclusion: it is suggested the development of health promotion and disease prevention initiatives through health education actions and other psychosocial strategies for welcoming these workers.
