Comprehensive and Effective Vehicle Exhaust LEV Solutions...
Vehicle exhaust fumes can quickly reach harmful concentrations, particularly from cold or intermittently run engines (when running indoors without exhaust ventilation). Don’t rely on catalytic converters to run engines safely indoors. Many employers fail to take the appropriate steps to protect their workers from exposure levels or have the correct safety equipment to extract exhaust fumes correctly to reduce the risk of any illnesses.Each time you inhale exhaust particles some of them get stuck in your lung tissue. The smaller the particles, the deeper they penetrate. This can cause both short-term and long-term health consequences, for example, coughing, difficulty breathing, asthma, chronic bronchitis, decreased lung capacity and at worst, cancer.Read More
By installing an exhaust fume extraction system, you will be providing a pollution-free environment for staff, leading to better health and reducing the number of sick days taken.
The HSE state: “Exhaust fumes can irritate the eyes and respiratory system and are a risk to health by breathing in. Carbon-fuelled engine fumes contain carbon monoxide, a poisonous gas. Prolonged exposure to diesel fumes, especially blue or black smoke, may lead to coughing and breathlessness. Long-term repeated exposure to diesel fumes over a period of time may increase the risk of lung cancer.”
The HSE also advises: “Keep the workplace well ventilated. Connect an exhaust gas scavenger system to the tailpipe when static running, particularly when working in an inspection pit. It should ventilate to a safe place in the open air — where fume will not be drawn back into the workshop or affect other premises or people nearby. Maintain couplings and flexible connections in good condition to prevent leaks. You should not rely on access doors being left open to provide ventilation as in winter these will be kept closed.”
