  1. Incidence of cancer among Norwegian boiler welders.

    Article - En anglais

    Objectives-The cancer incidence among 2957 boiler welders was investigated.

    The subjects were registered electrical welders from 1942 to 1981.

    A subcohort of 606 stainless steel welders was studied separately.

    Methods-The investigation was a historical prospective cohort study based on a national registry.

    The loss of follow up was 4.9%. Results-There were 625 deaths (659 expected).

    There were 269 cancer cases (264 expected).

    An excess of lung cancer was found ; 50 cases v 37.5 expected.

    There were three cases of pleural mesotheliomas v 1.1 expected.

    The subcohort of stainless steel welders had six cases of lung cancer v 5.8 expected, and one case of pleural mesothelioma v 0.2 expected.

    Conclusions-The welders in the study were assumed to represent a qualified work force.

    These welders had a small excess risk of lung cancer.

    The excess risk did not seem to be associated with stainless steel welding.

    Smoking and asbestos exposure were potential confounders.
