Workplace Exposure to Diesel Exhaust Linked to Lung Disease and Cancer

The exhaust from diesel-powered engines contains known hazardous substances that can pose a danger to workers’ health. Studies have shown that “long term”, unprotected exposure to diesel exhaust fumes on the job increases the risk for life-threatening conditions such as obstructive lung disease, lung and other cancers, and death.

Railroad and Bus Terminal Workers are at Increased Risk for Diesel Exhaust-Related Cancers and Death

Transportation workers, particularly railroad and bus terminal workers are at significant risk for exposure to diesel exhaust fumes on the job. Among those, employees with job functions that require close proximity to diesel exhaust are at the highest risk for injury.
