Safe handling of liquid asphalt by terminal workers and tanker-truck drivers is extremely important because liquid asphalt is stored and transported at high temperatures.

The Asphalt Institute is dedicated to safety and reliability at every stage of the asphalt life cycle, from refining, to transport, installation to recycling and eventual disposal. Safe handling procedures are a vital component of this approach, ensuring that any risk to workers and members of the public is minimized.
