OCRC Report: Assessment of diesel exhaust exposure in municipal fire halls in Ontario

This report summarizes the diesel exhaust exposure levels assessed in 12 fire halls from six fire services departments in Ontario and reviews how these exposures vary among the fire halls. The report also includes information on the exposure control strategies currently in place in the participating fire departments.

The study was requested and funded by the Prevention Office of the Ontario Ministry of Labour. The research was performed in collaboration with Dr. Tracy Kirkham from the University of Toronto’s Dalla Lana School of Public Health.
