Abstract Child labor is a public health problem, because it exposes children and adolescents to risks, injuries and physical deformities, affecting their development. This study aimed to characterize the work accidents involving children and adolescents of the city of João Pessoa. It was used a descriptive analysis of the information contained in 62 cards. It was found that the majority accidents occurred in boys (95, 7%), 16 to 18 years of age (77, 4%), exercising activities in trade and services sector (46, 4%), caused by contact with sharp slashing objects (37, 1%), causing injury (27, 4%) and contusions (22, 6%) in the upper limbs (56, 5%). It was also found of items improperly filled in the cards, with blank, not specified or ignored answers. It was concluded that the monitoring of the injures and health damage caused by work accidents with children and adolescents is a way of contributing to actions at all levels of public health, aimed to eradicate child labor.
