Abstract
In an era marked by rapid industrialization, urbanization, and transportation growth, air pollution has emerged as a global health, safety, and environmental challenge of paramount significance. This thesis delves into the intricate web of interactions between air pollution and its multifaceted impacts, aiming to elucidate the complexities involved and propose pathways towards sustainable solutions. The first section of the thesis investigates the health impacts of air pollution, drawing on a comprehensive review of epidemiological studies, clinical research, and public health data. It examines the linkages between air pollutants—such as particulate matter, nitrogen oxides, sulfur dioxide, and volatile organic compounds—and a spectrum of health outcomes, including respiratory diseases, cardiovascular disorders, adverse birth outcomes, and heightened mortality rates. Special attention is devoted to vulnerable populations, such as children, the elderly, and individuals with pre-existing health conditions, whose susceptibility to air pollution necessitates targeted interventions. Moving beyond human health, the thesis explores the safety implications of air pollution across various domains. It scrutinizes the role of air pollution in exacerbating road traffic accidents through reduced visibility, compromised driving conditions, and impaired cognitive function, shedding light on the intricate interplay between environmental factors and road safety outcomes. Furthermore, it investigates occupational health and safety risks associated with air pollution exposure in industrial workplaces, emphasizing the importance of robust regulatory frameworks, engineering controls, and personal protective equipment to mitigate hazards and safeguard workers' well-being. In its examination of environmental impacts, the thesis adopts an ecosystem-centered approach to assess the repercussions of air pollution on biodiversity, ecosystem services, and ecological resilience. The thesis culminates in a synthesis of policy recommendations, technological innovations, and behavioral interventions aimed at mitigating the health, safety, and environmental impacts of air pollution.
