Control of Asphalt Fume during Paving Government ...

Control of Asphalt Fume during Paving. Every year, nearly 300,000 asphalt paving workers are routinely exposed to asphalt fumes. In the early 1990s, pavers began reporting acute health effects: difficulty breathing, bronchitis, burning of the eyes and throat, headaches and nausea. The paving process requires that these paving crews work at the ...
