Título Mortality study of workers in the man-made mineral fiber production industry in the United Kingdom
Información bibliográfica 1986, Vol.12, suppl.1, p.85-93. 21 ref.
Resumen The workforces of 2 factories in the United Kingdom were followed up to the end of 1984 as part of the collaborative European study of the health of workers in the man-made mineral fibre industry. In the cohort from an English glass-wool plant there was no suggestion of any excess mortality compared to national or local rates, except for lung cancer among men in comparison to the national level. However, the data indicate that the workers were legally local persons by place of birth, occupation, and death, and they therefore suggest that the national comparison was inappropriate. Lung cancer mortality showed little relationship to length of employment, duration of time since first exposure, occupational classification, or level of exposure. In the cohort from a continuous-filament plant in Northern Ireland no excess mortality from cancer was found.
