Abstract
Epidemiological studies on diesel emission exposure in underground mines are discussed. These studies include three cohort mortality studies on cancer risk as well as mortality from chronic respiratory diseases. In-vitro and in-vivo studies on the effects of diesel exhaust also are considered. An inventory of exposure estimates for coal mine diesel emissions is presented, which is based on a severity scale of one (low) to three (high). Recommendations for epidemiologic and in-vivo and in-vitro investigations and tests also are presented.
