Reduce illnesses

Your colleagues are the most valuable asset, taking care of them by providing clean air at work can make them healthier and happier.


Reduce pollutants

Pollution in your facility can have a negative impact on equipment, such as forcing downtime and additional cleaning costs.


Be compliant

It is important to keep workplace exposure below the legal limits, even in peak-times.

Solutions for exposure to exhaust fumes

Diesel and gasoline engines used at the Department of Public Works produce a mixture of toxic gases and particulates from the combustion process. These hazardous vehicle exhaust emissions in a garage or storage facility represent the most significant cancer health risk and a serious legal liability to the owners and operators of these buildings. Additionally, exposure to Carbon Monoxide (CO) a.k.a. “the silent killer” created by both diesel and gasoline powered engines can cause serious to fatal effects to the body. It is essential to create healthy and safe working conditions by reducing these risks in Department of Transportation and Public Works facilities.

Protective measures are an important aspect of this effort. High-quality exhaust removal systems are recommended for existing and new facilities, to make sure that legal exposure limits are not exceeded.

11 Jan 2019 Health risks

Over the years, modern diesel engines have become cleaner. Or in other words: they have become less pollutable and emit less hazardous fumes. Diesel engines even emit less carbon dioxide than gasoline engines and many diesel engine manufacturers claim that most of the harm of diesel exhaust has been reduced.

Hazards due to diesel fumes are still insufficiently prevented

17 Oct 2017 Health risks

In workplaces such as garages, bus depots and warehouses there is a lot of pollution, caused by diesel engines. The engines produce toxic gases and particulates, that can cause serious health risks and legal liability. Although it is well known that fumes are toxic and protective measures should be taken, that isn’t always done.
