Work Safe Australia estimates that, annually, 1.2 million Australian workers are exposed to dangerous levels of diesel particulate matter in the workplace. Protect your workers in danger with our exhaust fume extractor equipment and diesel filter kit for hireManaging Exhaust on Site View Health Risks
Filtration units are the ideal solutions for hazardous diesel particulate matter on site. By fitting these filters at the source of emissions, you allow the fume to be captured, contained and controlled. To mitigate any DPM at risk of migrating to other areas, you can view our Ventex ventilation systems here.

During applications such as underground mining, tunnelling, boring, basement excavation and shipping, workers can be exposed to dangerous levels of diesel particulate matter from the vehicles or equipment they use. This includes construction site plant, forklifts, lorries and tractors, and fixed-power sources, including compressors, generators and power plants.
Insufficient exhaust fume control and ventilation during the use of such equipment can have a significant impact on workers’ health. The risk of damage also increases significantly when DPM is present in confined or enclosed spaces.
Short-term exposure to diesel particulate matter can cause irritation to the respiratory system and eyes as well as chronic respiratory ill health, such as coughing and breathlessness. In June 2012, the International Agency for Research on Cancer classified DPM as a Group 1 carcinogen in humans. Soot particulate and the sulphur and nitrogen oxides found in these emissions are now known to cause lung cancer and, to a lesser extent, bladder cancer. However, severe damage such as this may not be evident immediately. In fact, it can take up to ten, twenty or even thirty years for disease to become apparent.
RVT believe that effective exhaust control can be managed in three easy steps;
“I found your exhaust filter excellent on my project - very easy to install and maintain. I would have no hesitation in recommending your filter or using it again. I also found your office based guys and reps very helpful indeed and I look forward to using your products in the future.”

DEEEs stands for Diesel Engine Exhaust Emissions. DEEEs contain a complex mixture of gases, vapours, liquid aerosols and particulate substances, which are the products of combustion. DEEEs are known to cause anything from irritation to the eyes to an increased risk of lung and bladder cancer.
The Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations (COSHH) gives guidance on how to conduct a suitable risk assessment and determine whether the exposure risk is high, medium or low. Armed with this information, you can then determine the necessary steps to prevent or adequately control exposure to DEEEs. For more information read the HSE’s guidance titled ‘Control of diesel engine exhaust emissions in the workplace’.
