Safety handling We could go on at some length about our various safety initiatives, but we've chosen two examples to illustrate our basic approach. Safety is no accident Paving grade and industrial bitumen products are supplied, stored and handled at temperatures ranging from 150°C to 230°C. Accidents and incorrect handling can have serious consequences, including severe burns, shock, explosions and respiratory problems due to exposure to bitumen fumes. Initially a UK initiative, 'Safety is no accident' is now the subject of a pan-European campaign targeting our customers management and operational personnel. Safety Data Sheets The publication of Safety Data Sheets is a legal requirement for classified products – including information required by REACH. However, in the interests of full disclosure, we produce Safety Data Sheets for all our products.
