Air quality monitoring survey

An air monitoring survey was undertaken in June 2016 to assess personal exposures to Diesel Engine Exhaust Emission (DEEE) for operatives carrying out work on the M60.

The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has classified diesel engine exhaust as carcinogenic to humans if exposed to high fume levels.

The data has shown that the overall exposure to the DEEE was below recognised limits.

The results have been interpreted for the workforce, nearby residents and the traveling public. MSM is the first highways project to undertake air quality testing in the UK, demonstrating a proactive duty of care to all of its employees and the local community.

The information collected is also primary first hand data and not reiterated information.
