The utility industry is a broad industry that encompasses companies that deal with the provision of gas, electricity and other services. Utility companies have some of the most stringent health and safety policies and procedures because of the various health concerns employees are exposed to.
Maintenance garage facilities need to maintain heavy duty diesel power equipment. The International Mechanical Code requires all maintenance garages use source capture exhaust systems. The World Health Organization declared diesel exhaust a known carcinogen so employees use exhaust removal systems to prevent employee exposure to diesel exhaust.
OSHA has implemented reduced exposure values for some of the byproducts of welding fume such as manganese and beryllium. They also utilize welding fume extraction systems to prevent exposure to welding fumes. Source capture fume extraction systems ensure exposure to welding fumes is captured eliminated from the workplace.
