Workshop Service Pits
We've had some concern raised about fumes accumulating in a service pit in a heavy transport workshop.
The trucks are never running while they're being serviced or occupied by our service technicians.
Does anyone have any solid advice, information, etc that I can point people to in order to address those concerns?

We filled them with concrete and invested in large vehicle hoists
It does happen, seen it on a few occuances especially where the pits are not vented. Nothing worse than watching a cloud of exhaust fumes roll towards you in a pit (monitoring at the time back in the 80's) . Ideally the pit should be vented and the exhaust arise from just starting and stopping the motors and will sink to the lowest place.
