Vehicle repair shops are known for having elevated levels of toxic and carcinogenic gasses associated with exhaust emissions. These facilities are required by code to have source capture exhaust removal systems.
Idling vehicles, as well as cars that are used intermittently for short periods, can release harmful fumes into the air. When vehicles are started up indoors, it is difficult for these fumes to disperse naturally. Vehicle exhaust gases are present in wide range of workspaces, including auto dealerships and car repair workshops. Soot content (carbon particles) in diesel fumes account for up to 80 percent of the exhaust fumes. Breathing dangerous polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) increases your risk of developing asthma, lung irritation resulting in coughing and breathlessness or even cancer.
Vehicle exhaust fumes also contain other dangerous poisonous gases such as carbon monoxide. If concentrated levels of this type of gas are inhaled, the individual may increase his or her risk of immediate fatal poisoning. These fumes can irritate the respiratory tract and eyes as well as increase the risk of lung cancer over the long-term.
Today, Clean Air Company works with many auto dealerships and helps them to lower the health risks and work hazard risks by using equipment such as exhaust removal systems, welding fume collectors, and diesel exhaust systems. What’s more, we help car dealerships stay compliant with OSHA regulations.
