  1. Prediction of silicosis and lung cancer in the Australian labor force exposed to silica.

    Article - En anglais

    Empirical models for risk, based on recently published epidemiologic data, and simple prediction formulas were used to predict the occurrence of silicosis and lung cancer in the Australian labor force currently exposed to crystalline silica dust.

    As a result of an 0.9 (range 0.4-1.9)% average lifetime risk, approximately 1010 (range 380-2410) silicosis cases were predicted for the next 40 years among the estimated 136 400 men exposed at current silica dust levels [0.01-0.8 (average 0.094) mg.m-3].
