Facts and Figures to Support a Case Study in Reducing Worker Exposure to Diesel Exhaust Emissions
August 19, 2020
2:00–3:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time



Exposure to diesel exhaust is an ongoing occupational hygiene challenge.This presentation will describe emissions based maintenance (EBM) as a source control for worker exposure to diesel engine exhaust. It will outline the steps of EBM and provide scientific evidence and reasoning regarding the benefits of implementing EBM to a business including reduction in worker exposure and productivity gains in terms of reduced fuel consumption.  The evidence provided is from a scientific study undertaken within underground coal mines in Australia. The information provided can be used in any location that regularly ustilises and services diesel engine equipment.

Learning Objectives

After participating in this webinar, attendees will:

  • Understand why and how EBM can be implemented
  • Describe the EBM process
  • Realise the importance of sampling locations and consistent procedures
  • Know how to interpret results
  • Understand the multiple benefits to a business in implementing EBM

What is an ACGIH® Webinar?

ACGIH® is dedicated to providing quality, scientific, educational events. One method of doing this is to offer distance-learning webinars. A webinar, short for Web-based seminar, is a presentation, lecture, or seminar that is transmitted over the Internet. A key feature of a webinar is its interactive elements — the ability to give, receive and discuss information. Webinars are as effective as on-site presentations without the travel expense. This ACGIH® webinar is 1.0 hours in duration and consists of a live presentation given via the Internet with no option for call in audio.
