Título Mortality of workers in an automobile engine and parts manufacturing complex
Información bibliográfica Feb. 1985, Vol.42, No.2, p85-93. 33 ref.
Resumen Report on a proportionate mortality ratio study conducted on workers in an integrated automobile factory composed of forge, foundry and engine (machine and assembly) plants. Observed deaths (769) over a 10-year period (1970-1979) were compared with expected numbers based on a national (USA) and local standard for men. For the whole group there were no significant differences between observed and expected numbers of deaths. For various subgroups of workers (subdivided by race, plant, length or period of employment) significant increases were found for certain causes of death (such as cancers of the pancreas, bladder and rectum). The use of cutting oils is suggested as a possible cause of these excess deaths.
