The three specific aims of the study were: (1) to characterize EtO exposures in various industries, over time, etc,; (2) to identify potential determinants of EtO overexposures, and (3) to assess compliance with the EtO standard using traditional OSHA Compliance assessment for a given workplace over a given period of time versus a new method that estimate the probability that a typical measurement would exceed OSHA limits. Each of these aims has been addressed in published works or in publications in process.
