Essential reading for all those with responsibility for the design, construction, operation, inspection, and maintenance of bitumen handling installations, both in the manufacturing, blending, storage and distribution sectors, but also in the user sector of the bitumen industry.

The Bitumen safety code provides good health, safety and environmental protection practice, rather than a set of rigid rules, for the whole product life cycle of manufacture, blending, storage, distribution, handling, use and sampling.

The 4th edition follows a comprehensive review of all sections, and accounts for the introduction of new bitumen specifications being developed in the European Committee for Standardisation (CEN), providing a means to better communicate those amendments and product handling and storage temperatures. It aims to rationalise information on health research studies, and provide improved guidance on health management, in particular hazards, exposure mechanisms, generic inhalation exposure data, control measures and recovery strategies. It also takes account of the implications of the Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres Regulations (DSEAR), in particular, the control of flammable atmospheres, and the control of both electrical and non-electrical sources of ignition, and provide improved guidance on foreseeable fire scenarios.
