RR252 - Controlling and monitoring exposure to diesel engine exhaust emissions in non-coal mines

Most non-coal mines use diesel powered vehicles and equipment underground and consequently, in the confined spaces of a mine, the potential for worker exposure to diesel engine exhaust emissions (DEEEs) is high.

This document provides practical advice on how to control exposure to diesel engine exhaust emissions in non-coal mines and so protect the health of employees. It details a simple on-site method which allows mines to measure for themselves general body or personal exposures to DEEEs and so confirm that any controls in place are still effective and that exposures are being kept to a minimum in line with the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) requirements.
