Hypothetical exposure limits for oil-based metalworking fluids and cardiovascular mortality in a cohort of autoworkers: structural accelerated failure time models in a public health framework.

Picciotto S, Peters A, Eisen EA - Am. J. Epidemiol. (2015)

Bottom Line: Banning oil-based fluids would have saved an estimated 4,003 (95% confidence interval: 2,200, 5,807) life-years among those who died of ischemic heart disease.Estimates for cardiovascular disease overall, acute myocardial infarction, and cerebrovascular disease were 3,500 (95% confidence interval: 1,350, 5,651), 2,932 (95% confidence interval: 1,587, 4,277), and 917 (95% confidence interval: -80, 1,913) life-years, respectively.A limit of 0.01 mg/m(3) would have had a similar impact on cerebrovascular disease but one only half as great on ischemic heart disease.

KWU484F2: Number of years of life that could have been saved among workers who died of ischemic heart disease by enforcing various occupational exposure limits for oil-based metalworking fluids, United AutoWorkers–General Motors cohort, 1941–1995.

Mentions: Figure 2 shows estimates of the exposure limits’ impacts on IHD mortality. Although the overall shape is the same as that for cardiovascular disease, all of the limits show higher impacts on IHD, even though there are fewer cases.Figure 2.
