BACKGROUND Fumes and vapours released during laying of hot asphalt mix have been recognised as a major source of exposure for asphalt workers. OBJECTIVES We investigated the relationships between inhalation exposure to asphalt emissions and urinary biomarkers of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in asphalt workers (AW, n=75) and in ground construction workers (CW, n=37). METHODS Total polyaromatic compounds (PAC) and 15 priority PAHs in inhaled air were measured by personal sampling… CONTINUE READING
