STUDY OF PAVING ASPHALT FUMES
In response to a 1988 proposal by the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to label asphalt fumes as carcinogenic and limit worker exposure to them by establishing a permissible exposure level, the National Asphalt Pavement Association funded a study to evaluate the exposure of paving crew workers to paving asphalt fumes as total particulate, benzene soluble organics, and specific individual polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons. Exposure levels at the Hot Mix Asphalt facility were also evaluated, as well as the effects of temperature when heating paving asphalt.
