Exposure to Diesel Particulates and their Health Effects on Employees in a Metalliferous Mine in Western Australia
MetadataShow full item record
Diesel Particulates (DP) is a growing concern in many industries. This research looks at acute health effects related to DP exposure and how DP is monitored in an underground mine in Western Australia. Results appear to show that higher exposure to DP may in fact be linked to certain acute health issues and that a standardised method of monitoring should be developed. This research provides a basis for further DP related studies.
