English term or phrase: diesel shop
Arbeitsbuch zur Arbeitssicherheit:

Because even if the odds of losing an eye walking into a *diesel shop* or a machine shop may be 1 in 5,000,000, you can't move faster than the piece of metal coming towards you - so you can't get out the line-of-fire in time.

Leider nicht mehr Kontext. Was ist ein "diesel shop"? Vielen Dank für Eure Hilfe.

Werkstatt
Explanation:
Given the scarce context I might just go for "Werkstatt oder Maschinenhalle"?? Odd wording for a book on health and safety though...

agree  Steffen Walter: Reicht m. E. im Kontext völlig aus, hier kommt es nicht so sehr auf die exakte Entsprechung an. Vielleicht "Werkstatt oder Werkhalle" oder einfach nur "Werkstatt"?
