Severe Silicosis in Engineered Stone Fabrication Workers - California, Colorado, Texas, and Washington, 2017-2019
Silicosis is an incurable occupational lung disease caused by inhaling particles of respirable crystalline silica. These particles trigger inflammation and fibrosis in the lungs, leading to progressive, irreversible, and potentially disabling disease. Silica exposure is also associated with increased risk for lung infection (notably, tuberculosis), lung cancer, emphysema, autoimmune diseases, and kidney disease. Because quartz, a type of crystalline silica, is commonly found in stone, workers who cut, polish, or grind stone materials can be exposed to silica dust. Recently, silicosis outbreaks...
Estimating occupational illness, injury, and mortality in food production in the united states
A farm-to-table analysis OBJECTIVES: The study provides a novel model and more comprehensive estimates of the burden of occupational morbidity and mortality in food-related industries, using a farm-to-table approach. METHODS: The authors analyzed 2008 to 2010 US Bureau of Labor Statistics data for private industries in the different stages of the farm-to-table model (production, processing, distribution and storage, and retail and preparation). RESULTS: The morbidity rate for food system industries was significantly higher than the morbidity rate for nonfood system industries (rate ratio = 1.62;...
Occupational injury risk by sex in a manufacturing cohort
OBJECTIVES: This study expands previous research comparing injury risk for women and men in a cohort of 24 000 US aluminium manufacturing workers in 15 facilities from 2001 to 2010. METHODS: We compared injury rates (all injury, first aid, medical treatment, restricted work and lost work time) by sex and by job and sex. Using a mixed effect modelling approach, we calculated ORs and 95% CIs adjusting for age, job tenure, ethnicity and year as fixed effects and person, job and plant as random effects. Additionally, we modelled the data stratified by plant type to examine potential differences in...
Mortality and Cancer Incidence in Aluminum Smelter Workers
A 5-Year Update Objective: To determine the mortality and cancer incidence of aluminum smelter workers. Method: The experience of 17,089 workers between 1950 and 2004 was studied. Results: There were 25 deaths/47 female incident cancers and 6350 deaths/3984 male incident cancers. Mortality was significantly elevated for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, Alzheimer disease (likely influenced by regional factors), all cancers, stomach, bladder, and lung cancers. Incidence was significantly elevated for bladder, lung, and laryngeal cancers. Digestive, lung, and bladder cancer mortality and lung...
Food and beverage sector
Working conditions and job quality This report gives an overview of working conditions, job quality, workers' health and job sustainability in the food and beverage service activities sector (NACE 56). It is based mostly on the fifth European Working Conditions Survey (EWCS), which gathers data on working conditions and the quality of work across 34 European countries. Additional information on the structural characteristics of the sector is derived from Eurostat data. The fifth EWCS contains responses from 1,349 workers in the food and beverage sector. Source:
HSE - Food and drink manufacture injury rates continue to fall
HSE recently published its latest HSE Statistics (2009/10) on workplace injuries, work-related ill health and enforcement in GB. During 2009/10, in food and drink manufacture, there were 4185 ‘over-3-day absence' injuries plus 856 ‘major' injuries (eg broken bones or requiring hospitalisation). Expressed as injury rates, 'O-3-D absence injuries' reduced from 1197 (2008/09) to 1165 injuries/100,000 workers, a drop of 2.7%. The combined rate for ‘O-3-D absence' plus ‘major injuries' fell by 1% during 2009/10 which, when added to an earlier 3% drop in...
Fatalities in food and drink manufacture
In the ten year period April 1999 to March 2009 there were 33 fatal injuries (excluding those to contractors) in the food and drink manufacturing industries. These fatalities involved machinery (over 30%), workplace transport (over 25%), falls from height (over 20%) and confined spaces/asphyxiation (over 10%).
