Diesel Emissions Solutions
Within confined spaces the use of diesel engine equipment causes the production of toxic fumes and diesel particulate. The fumes can irreversibly poison those in this environment. Diesel particulate is classed as a carcinogenic.
In accordance with the requirements under the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations 2002 as amended (COSHH), control measures must be in place to control the emissions and reduce the impact of any fumes and dust created.
We always work according to established protocols for dealing with diesel emissions, including the acknowledged hierarchy of control: Elimination, Substitution, Engineering Controls, Work Practices and PPE (Personal Protective Equipment).
We offer the following services individually or in combination to provide a complete package of management solutions.
