A subcontractor was using a compound containing asphalt and petroleum naphtha to reproof a building. Despite the fact that the ventilation system had been put on total recirculation with no outside air intake, some of the vapors entered the work area inside. Employees #1 through #5 reported slight to mild symptoms that could be attributed to solvent exposure, and were sent to a local hospital for medical evaluation. All were later released. The physician reported that only Employee #2 exhibited physical evidence of exposure to organic vapors.
