||Protection from exhaust gases in motor vehicle repair shops
||Schutz vor Autoabgasen in Kfz-Werkstńtten [in German]|
||June 1994, No.6, p.180-182.
||In many vehicle repair shops in Germany, high carbon monoxide concentrations in excess of the exposure limit were measured. Noise levels during engine tests were found to amount to about 95dB(A). An instruction manual was issued which recommends protective measures such as: exhausting the vehicle exhaust gases at the various workplaces, providing separate rooms for noisy tasks, wearing hearing protectors and reducing vehicle movements inside the repair shops. Formulae are presented for quickly assessing the carbon monoxide pollution and the fresh air volume needed to comply with the exposure limit.
