Bitumens - Occupational Exposures - CAREX Canada

Overview. Inhalation of bitumen fumes and dusts is the most important route of occupational exposure. [] For bitumens used in cooler temperatures, such as cutback bitumens, blended bitumens, and bitumen emulsions, regular skin contact may also occur. [] CAREX Canada estimates that approximately 58,000 Canadians are exposed to bitumens in their workplaces.
