An Australian health surveillance program, known as the health watch cohort, investigated mortality and cancer incidence in industrial workplaces (land based as well as offshore) between the years 1980-2000.
There were significant increases in the incidence rate of melanoma (SIR 1.54 95% and CI 1.3-1.81) relative to the general population. The effect on skin of combined exposure to a mixture of heat, ultra violet (UV) rays and chemicals is being assessed.
