Rail transportation employees have a high risk of respiratory injuries. Long-term exposure to locomotive diesel fumes increases the risk of lung cancer, COPD and asthma. In addition, many of the volatile materials moved by rail can cause toxic clouds of gas or dust. In such an environment, respirators are critical for safety. Magid’s broad inventory of respirators include disposable masks and filters, full and half mask units and supplied air systems for working in toxic environments or confined spaces—such as freight cars.
Here are the recommended products for this industry. If you don't see what you need, a Magid safety specialist can work with you to address your needs.
