The aim of this study is to evaluate the sensibility, specificity and predictive values of the Anamnestic Questionnaire for Symptoms of Upper Limb and Spine (CASMSC) as developed by the Unit of Investigation of Ergonomics of Posture and Movement (EPM). A correlational descriptive study was carried out, by means of secondary data analysis of one database with registers of workers of the food industry (n=401) on 2013 year, whom the CASMSC has been applied to, as well as a physiotherapeutic clinic evaluation focused on the same body segments; this latter used as gold standard. To analyze if there were statistical differences per age, seniority and gender the one-way analysis of variance was applied. The sensibility, specificity and predictive values of the CASMSC are reported with their respective intervals of confidence (95%). Prevalence of positive threshold for suspicion of DME both of upper limb and spine were quite above of national measurement for the sector. Sensibility of the CASMSC for upper limb was in the range from 80% to 94,57% and for cervical and lumbar spine was 36,4% and 43,4%, respectively. For dorsal region was almost double of other two regions (85,7%). CASMSC is a recommendable test in the evaluation of symptoms of the upper limb given its high level of sensibility.
