||Historical cohort study of a New Zealand foundry and heavy engineering plant
||Feb. 1999, Vol.56, No.2, p.134-138. 30 ref.
||This historical cohort study investigated the mortality of workers who had been exposed to asbestos, machining fluids and foundry work in a foundry and heavy engineering plant in the railway rolling stock manufacturing industry in New Zealand. There were small increases in risk for several causes of death among the foundry and heavy engineering workers. However, these increases were small and the possible effects of smoking and other lifestyle factors could not be excluded. There was evidence of asbestos-related disease in those involved in engineering work in the past. Topics: asbestos; cancer; cardiovascular diseases; cohort study; foundries; long-term study; lubricants; lung cancer; mortality; musculoskeletal diseases; pleural mesothelioma; respiratory diseases; smoking.
