Working on diesel vehicles is a regular part of the job for employees in a variety of industries, including construction, manufacturing, mining and agriculture. But such vehicles can present a number of health hazards if not properly controlled.
*Diesel engine exhaust emissions (commonly known as ‘diesel fumes’) are a mixture of gases, vapours, liquid aerosols and substances made up of particles. They contain the products of combustion including:
• Carbon (soot)
• Carbon monoxide
