Vehicle exhaust harm & How Plymovent can help

    People who are working in Garages are not at all concerned since exhaust gases are silent killers which take you and your family to huge debt for the medical treatments, especially after the retirements.

    So, it is better to avoid possible exposer to these gases, in the European air quality at work is important and is regulated by law. Still, some counties are yet to put up regulations as well.

    We provide vehicle exhaust extractors that ensure clean air in the work environment of vehicle mechanics and firefighters.

    Diesel engines, used in fire trucks, produce a mixture of toxic gases and particulates from the combustion process. These hazardous vehicle exhaust emissions in a fire station are one of a firefighter’s most significant cancer health risks and a serious legal liability for the fire department. It is essential to create healthy and safe working conditions by reducing these risks. Protective measures are an important aspect of this.

    Eliminate this hazard from your fire station with our vehicle exhaust capture and removal systems. From existing stations to new design-built, our totally automatic start-up and disconnect source capture systems are the recommended method for controlling exhaust emissions in your station.

    International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), which is part of WHO, classified diesel engine exhaust as carcinogenic to humans (Group 1), based on sufficient evidence that exposure is associated with an increased risk for lung cancer. Gases include Carbon Monoxide, Carbon dioxide, Nitrogen Oxides, Sulfur dioxide, Ozone, and gases that can irritate the respiratory system, causing coughing, choking, and reduced lung capacity.

    Vehicle exhaust has a whole range designed for the suction of exhaust gases in garages. Hose reels, rail system, hose drop, and many more to help.

    At Plymovent, we know what the danger of exposure to hazardous exhaust fumes can be. We continuously review safety management guidelines and listen to what the independent experts have to say:

    • OSHA – The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has set a permissible exposure limit of 1 part of benzene per million parts of air (1 ppm) in the workplace during an 8-hour workday, 40-hour workweek.
    • The EPA has classified benzene as a Group A carcinogen
    • The CDCs – Centers for Disease Control & Prevention report that exhaust from any incorrectly maintained vehicle can pose serious hazards. The most common source of carbon monoxide is automobile exhaust vented in confined spaces. Correct ventilation and prevention of carbon monoxide build-up in confined spaces must be assured.
    • NIOSH – The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, states that there can be no safe level of exposure to a carcinogen; the NIOSH Threshold Limit Value is therefore the “lowest feasible level.”

    Plymovent systems are designed to meet or exceed the standards of the most exacting health and safety codes –worldwide!
