The mortality of all 14,282 workers employed at the Sellafield plant of British Nuclear Fuels between 1947 and 1975 was studied up to the end of 1988 and cancer incidence was examined from 1971 to 1986.
This updates a previous report on mortality only up to the end of 1983.
Ninety-nine per cent of the workers were traced satisfactorily.
Cancer mortality was 4% less than that of England and Wales [standardised mortality ratio (SMR)=96 ; 95% confidence interval (CI)=90,103] and the same as that of Cumbria (SMR=100 ; Cl=94,107).
Cancer incidence was 10% less than that of England and Wales [standardised registration ratio (SRR)=90 ; Cl=83,97] and 18% less than that of Northern Region (SRR=82 ; Cl=75,88).
