||Occupations and industries in France at high risk of pleural mesothelioma: A population-based case-control study (1998-2002)

||Occupational exposure to asbestos, widely used in various industries for decades, is the most important risk factor for pleural mesothelioma. The objective of this population-based case-control study was to establish the ranking of occupations and industries in France at high risk for this cancer among men and women. It was conducted from 1998 to 2002, included 462 cases (80.3% men) and 897 controls. Data were collected in face-to-face interviews with a standardized questionnaire. Odds ratios (ORs) were calculated for each occupation and industry; subjects never employed in each category were the reference. For men, risks were high for several occupations and industries. Besides the expected high risks for non-metallic mineral product makers and manufacturing asbestos products, occupations such as plumbers (OR=5.57), sheet-metal workers, welders, foundry workers and cabinetmakers were also at high risk. Elevated risks were found in the industries of shipbuilding (OR=9.13) and construction, but also in the manufacturing of metal products, chemicals, and railroad and aircraft equipment. The results for women showed increased but non-significant risks in several occupational activities.
