Incidence of lymphohematopoietic malignancies among styrene-exposed workers of the reinforced plastics industry.
The goal of this study was to determine the risk of lymphohematopoietic malignancies for workers exposed to styrene.
This was a historical cohort study.
The observed numbers of newly diagnosed cases of lymphohematopoietic malignancies in the study population were compared with expected numbers based on the national rates.
The study took place in the Danish reinforced plastics industry, in which high exposure levels of styrene occur frequently in an environment free of most other suspected carcinogens.
Altogether 36 525 male employees of 386 companies producing reinforced plastics and 14 254 nonstyrene exposed employees of similar industries were studied.
