Full Description

Automotive vehicle repair workshops can be challenging working environments to control risks. In addition to fumes from vehicle exhausts, there are also other hazards from other processes that can prove difficult to manage exposure control from, such as welding, grinding and sanding. Exhaust fumes are regularly overlooked as a hazard in automotive vehicle repair workshops with many small, independent garages opting to leave workshop doors open as the preferred method of ventilation. However, exhaust fumes can contribute to several health factors and research proved that long-term exposure to exhaust fumes can cause serious health implications.

"There is sufficient evidence in humans for the carcinogenicity of diesel engine exhaust.”

What Do The HSE Recommend?

In HSE 'HSG187: Control of Diesel Engine Exhaust Emissions (DEEEs) in the workplace’ guidance, it is recommended that engineering controls, such as local exhaust ventilation (LEV) should enclose the exhaust pipe with a capture nozzle, where exhaust fumes are emitted. HSE recommend that an extraction system is installed, typically with a flexible hose connected to an exhaust nozzle to safely capture and remove fumes from the working environment. Whilst, In HSE HSG261: Health and Safety in Motor Vehicle Repair and Associated Industries guidance, it is recommended that: Local exhaust ventilation is used wherever possible and always in confined locations.”
