Maximum Safe Handling Temperatures webinar for members

Approximately 30 people from Eurobitume member companies with a specific interest in the safe handling of bitumen attended the latest internal educational webinar, Maximum Safe Handling Temperatures, which was led by Eurobitume HSE Lead Dr Anja Sörensen and focussed upon the maximum safe handling temperatures for bitumen.

She then stated that while the maximum safe handling temperature varies according to type of bitumen, since at least 1997 Eurobitume and its members have been recommending that the maximum recommended safe handling temperature for:

  • bitumen and air-rectified bitumen is 200ºC, and for
  • severely oxidised bitumen it is 230ºC.

The webinar then covered the Hierarchy of Controls and Measures, which either completely remove the hazard or mitigate against its impact, and Anja then gave various examples of measures that are taken to manage workers exposure and provide protection.
