  • Objective: The objective of this study was to assess both malignant and nonmalignant mortality risks of workers exposed to creosote. For background, a literature review is also presented. Materials and Methods: The retrospective cohort study consisted of 2179 employees at 11 plants in the United States where wood (primarily railroad ties and utility poles) is treated with creosote-based preservatives. The observation period covered 1979–2001. Mortality data in the cohort study were analyzed in… CONTINUE READING
