Solutions for exposure to exhaust fumes

From roads to bridges and pipelines to tunnels, heavy equipment is used worldwide for nearly all big infrastructure projects. While these heavy-duty vehicles are meant to operate outside, some need to be stored in an indoor facility and receive maintenance at a certain point. Letting these vehicles run indoors without capturing the generated hazardous fumes from the engine can significantly affect your health.

Many specialized agencies, including the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), have shown that fumes can lead to a variety of severe respiratory diseases without taking necessary precautions. Therefore, whether you have a backhoe loader, bulldozer, or a dump truck, Plymovent is here to help you create a healthier and safer workplace with the help of our vehicle exhaust extraction systems.

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.
