Cooling Asphalt Burns
The Asphalt Institute’s (AI) Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) committee develops tools for members and the public that can be used to protect people working in the asphalt industry.
One tool developed during 2014 was guidance on how to prevent asphalt burns. The efforts highlighted the importance of immediate cooling of the asphalt to prevent further injury if someone got asphalt on their skin. The committee produced training materials devoted to assisting on-site first aid response for asphalt burns.
The burn treatment tools included a 13-minute video that included testimonials from asphalt workers that had suffered asphalt burns. The video also included simulated accident scenes highlighting the inherent dangers of working around hot asphalt and how to prevent burns. To accompany the video, the committee also developed and published a series of wallet cards and posters on recommended personal protective equipment (PPE).
