||Most non-coal mines use diesel-powered vehicles and equipment underground. Consequently, in the confined spaces of a mine, the potential for worker exposure to diesel engine exhaust emissions (DEEEs) is high. This report provides practical advice on how to control exposure to diesel engine exhaust emissions in non-coal mines. It describes a simple on-site method for measuring exposures to DEEEs and to confirm whether the controls in place are effective and the exposures are being kept in line with the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH, see CIS 00-620) requirements.
