Elder Care SHA Ethylene Oxide Mobile App
Ethylene oxide (EtO) is a flammable, colorless gas at temperatures above 51.3 ºF (10.7 ºC) that smells like ether at toxic levels.
How does it work?
EtO is found in the production of solvents, antifreeze, textiles, detergents, adhesives, polyurethane foam, and pharmaceuticals. Smaller amounts are present in fumigants, sterilants for spices and cosmetics, as well as during hospital sterilization of surgical equipment. Use the Elder Care OSHA Ethylene Oxide mobile app in your elder care facilities to help eliminate risk associated with ethylene oxide. Check out other Health Care Apps in our App store.
