Abstract
NIOSH recommends that occupational exposure to asphalt fumes shall be controlled so that employees are not exposed to the airborne particulates at a concentration greater than 5 milligrams per cubic meter of air during any 15 minute period. Criteria are outlined for air sampling and analysis, medical surveillance, labeling and posting, personal protective equipment and protective clothing, informing employees of hazards from molten asphalt and asphalt fumes, work practices, sanitation practices, monitoring and recordkeeping. Also, outlined are the biological effects of exposure to asphalt fumes, and environmental data and engineering controls. (Contract No. 099-74-0031)
