||Cancer mortality study among French cement production workers
||2011, Vol. 84, p.167-173. 31 ref.
||The objective of this study was to analyze the mortality and its causes, especially cancer, among French cement production workers. A cohort of all workers employed at least one year in one of the main four cement companies in France was assembled (9,118 workers, 122,124 person-years of follow-up between 1990 and 2005). Job titles classification were used to analyze occupational risk factors. A standardized mortality ratio analysis was conducted based on age, gender and calendar-period-specific national mortality rates and explored the combined effect of job titles and duration through an internal Cox regression analysis. Findings are discussed. Overall, the study does not support previous reports that cement workers are at higher risk of cancer mortality than the general population.
