Abstract
This document represents a collaborative effort of the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), the National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA), the Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers' Association (ARMA), the Asphalt Institute (AI), and the United Union of Roofers, Waterproofers, and Allied Workers to reduce worker exposures to asphalt fumes during the manufacture of asphalt roofing products. The document describes the manufacturing process, identifies steps in the process with the potential for asphalt fume exposure, and identifies current engineering control methods and work practices used to reduce exposures. In addition, the document lists relevant research needed for further reducing asphalt fume exposures during the manufacture of asphalt roofing products.
