Cranbury, NJ – At the APWA Public Works Expo (PWX) later this month in St. Louis, Missouri, Plymovent’s Business Development Manager, Aaron Stewart will be presenting during the educational sessions. On, Tuesday, August 31, 2021 at 11am in Exhibit Hall Booth 1031, Aaron will be discussing “The Dangers of Vehicle Exhaust in The Workplace”.
Exhaust fumes and pollutants can impair health as well as safety. Specifically, diesel exhaust (as soot or chemical extracts) has been found to cause changes in cells’ DNA. International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), part of the World Health Organization (WHO), classifies diesel engine exhaust as “carcinogenic to humans,” based on sufficient evidence that it is linked to an increased risk of lung cancer.
The PWX Expo provides a first-class multimodal learning experience designed for professionals at all levels and across the entire spectrum of public works. Educational sessions will address current public works issues—as well as ongoing challenges. There will be more than 125 technical and professional development sessions presented.
