Australian Work Exposure Study (AWES) - Carcinogen Exposures Construction Industry
A random, population-based sample of 5528 Australian workers participated in the Australian Work Exposure Study (AWES). Workers answered questions about the tasks they completed and the controls used at work. Based on their responses to those questions, the likelihood of exposure to 38 known or suspected carcinogens was estimated. The AWES focused on the most common tasks performed at work. Workers were not asked directly about their exposures to carcinogens and exposure levels were not measured in the workplace. This report describes the responses provided by 459 AWES participants categorised...
L'ANSES confirme les risques sanitaires liés à l'exposition aux bitumes
L'ANSES vient de publier un rapport formulant un certain nombre de recommandations pour prévenir les divers risques affectant la santé des travailleurs exposés aux bitumes. Au-delà du potentiel cancérogène des produits bitumineux et de leurs émissions, les experts de l'ANSES ont mis en évidence dans leur expertise l'existence d'effets respiratoires et suspectent également des effets cardiovasculaires et immunotoxiques. Selon les postes de travail, les niveaux d'exposition sont plus ou moins importants. La température...
Cancer Incidence in World Trade Center Rescue and Recovery Workers, 2001–2008
World Trade Center (WTC) rescue and recovery workers were exposed to a complex mix of pollutants and carcinogens. Cancers among 20,984 consented participants in the WTC Health Program were identified through linkage to state tumor registries in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, and Pennsylvania. Standardized incidence ratios (SIRs) were calculated to compare cancers diagnosed in responders to predicted numbers for the general population. Multivariate regression models were used to estimate associations with degree of exposure. Source :
Bladder cancer risk in painters
A meta-analysis The International Agency for Research on Cancer has classified occupational exposure as a painter as ‘carcinogenic to humans', largely based on increased risks of bladder and lung cancer. A meta-analysis, including more than 2900 incident cases or deaths from bladder cancer among painters reported in 41 cohort (n=2), record linkage (n=9) and case–control (n=30) studies, was conducted to quantitatively compare the results of the different study designs and the potential confounding effect of smoking as well as other occupational exposures. The summary relative risk...
