Vehicle Exhaust Fume Extraction
Vehicle exhaust fumes are extremely dangerous and can seriously harm people who are exposed or work around them. They contain several gases that can be dangerous to people if not extracted from the air and breathed in.
Carbon monoxide is one such dangerous gas found in exhaust fumes. It is produced in internal combustion engines (e.g. cars, trucks, forklifts), gas heaters, furnaces, kilns and other equipment, as well as in some manufacturing processes. This gas, which is odourless and can’t be detected until it’s too late, can kill.
Many workers in many industries are potentially exposed to this hazard. Thousands of them suffer from the debilitating effects of high-level exposure. Many more are subject to low-level, long-term carbon monoxide exposure, the effects of which are unknown. This poisonous gas is one of the most dangerous and widespread industrial hazards.
Exhaust fumes from diesel engines are also quite dangerous. These contain several constituents that are harmful to human health and to the environment.
The World Health Organisation’s (WHO) International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) concluded back in 2012 that diesel engine exhaust is a Group 1 carcinogen – that is, carcinogenic to humans.
