The paper presents the results of the studies on the exposure of workers who may face exhaust emissions of diesel engines from urban transport. Many workers such as drivers, toll booth workers, security guards, public domain workers, police officers may be exposed daily to the chemical pollutants from urban transport. It is estimated that 52% of annual occupational deaths in the European Union can be attributed to work-related cancers. The study responds to the actions to prevent the exposure of workers to carcinogens that the European Commission has included in the Europe’s Beating Cancer Plan adopted in early 2021.
