Diesel Particulate Monitoring

If your workplace contains diesel-operated plant equipment or other machinery, you must keep your workers safe by ensuring you don’t exceed the workplace exposure standards for diesel particulate matter (DPM). Airsafe offers both portable and fixed DPM monitoring solutions with daily checking.

What is diesel particulate matter?

Diesel exhaust comes from engines burning diesel fuel. It is a complex mixture of gases, vapours, liquid aerosols and particulate substances. These substances are the products of combustion.

DPM risks and health effects

Diesel particulate matter is a level 1 carcinogen.

The risks are highest in enclosed, poorly ventilated areas where exhaust levels can build up, including vehicle repair workshops, tunnels, partially covered roadways, and walkways.

Workers at most risk of DPM exposure include:

  • drive-in booth operators
  • miners
  • construction workers
  • oil and gas workers
  • airline ground workers
  • forklift drivers
  • loading dock workers
  • truck drivers
  • farmworkers
  • stevedores
  • vehicle maintenance workers.
