SummaryThe Incidence of Gastric System Illness Was Studied Among British Bus and Tram Workers. Health Records Covering All Illnesses of More Than 2 Weeks Duration Over a 3 Year Period Were Examined for About 35,000 London Bus Drivers, 35,000 Bus Conductors, 15,000 Tram Drivers, and 15,000 Tram Conductors. Sicknesses From Gastric and Other Causes Were Compared Between Occupational and Age Groups. Gastric Causes Accounted for 12.2 to 16.7 Percent of Sick Days Among Bus Drivers, 11.2 to 18.8 Percent Among Bus Conductors, 12.8 to 13.7 Percent Among Tram Drivers, and 9.8 to 17.2 Percent Among Tram Conductors. When Expected Sick Days Were Calculated From Tram Worker Rates, Bus Workers' Actual Sick Days Were 103 Percent of Expected Overall and 117 Percent for Gastric Causes Among Drivers, and 117 Percent Overall and 137 Percent for Gastric Causes Among Conductors. The Relative Incidence of Gastric Illness Differed Most Notably Between Bus and Tram Drivers Aged 30 to 49 and Between Bus and Tram Conductors Aged 20 to 39. Sickness Rates Were Similar for Tram Drivers and Conductors, While Bus Conductors Had a 20 Percent Excess of Sickness Over Their Own Drivers, Both Overall and for Gastric Causes. The Author Concludes That Some Excess of Gastric Illness Occurs Among Bus Workers As Compared to Tram Workers in Those Age Groups to Which the Majority of the Former Belong. ; 8vo; v, 33 pages
