Investigation of hazards to a train crew from diesel exhaust gases conducted through sampling of levels of carbon-monoxide (630080), nitrogen-dioxide (10102440), sulfur-dioxide (7446095) and aldehydes reveals low to nondetectable concentrations of these substances. Noise levels in the engine room are determined to pose a hearing hazard. Recommendations are made for a hearing conservation program, including periodic audiograms and use of hearing protective equipment.
