NIOSH Testimony in Response to a Grant Proposal by Dr. Janet Yager, University of California, Regarding Exposure to Ethylene Oxide by J. D. Millar, March 19, 1985.
NIOSH 1985 Mar:1 pages
This comment was in response to a letter from the Department of Labor requesting that NIOSH give consideration to funding for a study to determine whether short term high level exposures to ethylene-oxide (75218) (EtO) are more hazardous than an equivalent dose spread evenly over an 8 hour workday. The grant proposal was withdrawn and had not been resubmitted. While NIOSH appreciates the implications of such work, it is not felt necessary for the promulgation of an EtO standard that includes a limit on short term exposures. NIOSH has concluded that the majority of occupational exposures to EtO are relatively short term at relatively high concentrations and feels that sufficient evidence has already been presented on which to base that limit.
