Abstract
Ethylene oxide sterilization facilities, which sterilize most of the medical equipment sold to doctor's offices and hospitals, face some inherent dangers from the ethylene oxide (EtO)-based cleaning process they use. An increased incidence of explosions at these facilities has brought safety concerns to the forefront in this industry.
