One of the areas of risk communication in which researchers from the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) are involved can be classified under the rubric of individual worker notification (Schulte and Ringen, 1984). This type of risk communication pertains to informing surviving workers of the findings of retrospective cohort mortality studies. Over the past 25 years, both government and private organizations have conducted a variety of retrospective cohort mortality studies. The question has arisen as to whether the subjects of these studies should be individually informed of the results.
