||An attempt was made to identify any cancer hazards that might currently be affecting men employed in this type of work. A total of 4,917 male workers who first started working in a large rubber factory between 1962 and 1972 have been followed up until 31 January 1983. The number of deaths from all causes and from malignant neoplasms was determined and compared with the expected number of deaths. Mortality from all causes was 85% of that expected. A slight overall excess of deaths from cancer was found; this was due to the excess mortality in the 35-44 age group. A trend in mortality with duration of exposure was found for employees with 10yrs of follow-up or more. A high risk for some tumour sites emerged.
