||Theoretically possible exposures of workers to particulate diesel emissions in two German underground coal mines were determined by calculation. It appears that the limit of 0.6mg/m3, acceptable for underground coal mining workplaces at the time of the investigation, can be complied with. This calculation method could be applied when planning new mining sites in order to improve prevention and limit workers' exposure.
