Pavement Magazine Column, May 2, 2017: NIOSH Project Update

PCTC’s May 2, 2017, column in Pavement Maintenance & Reconstruction Magazine is focused on the 2nd year of the NIOSH project:

The new sealcoating season marks the second year of the project run by the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) to collect data from sealcoat applicators. Like the similar study of asphalt paving crews conducted by NIOSH a decade ago, the sealcoat industry study is expected to yield useful data to help evaluate industry health and safety practices.

PCTC is facilitating the progress of the study by encouraging sealcoat applicators to host a NIOSH sampling team on jobs during the 2017 sealcoating season.

To move forward with reaching the goal of 200 man-days, NIOSH is looking for larger jobs. If your company would consider participation in the NIOSH study this year, please contact me at alehuray@pavementcouncil.org. Before introducing you to NIOSH, PCTC will help educate you about what to expect.
