Ethylene Oxide On-Site Exposure Monitoring Services


Our On-Site survey will be performed by Kem Medical Products and is backed by 30 plus years of expertise in the field of chemical exposure testing and safety evaluations in the healthcare industry.  All of our products and services are designed to meet and exceed all JCAHO, NIOSH and OSHA requirements.



Our On-site survey will include:


  • Measure personal exposure levels of employees for the OSHA 8-hour TWA limit of 1 ppm using VAPOR-TRAK® Ethylene Oxide specific monitoring badges, #8500. 
  • Measure personal exposure levels of employess for the OSHA 15-minute STEL short term excursion limit of 5 ppm using Ethylene Oxide specific monitoring badges, #8500.
  • Analysis of the VAPOR-TRAK® monitoring badges will promptly be performed at our ISO 9001 Certified Analytical laboratory and a written Laboratory Analysis Report will follow via email for your records.
  • Real-time monitoring and leak testing during the sterilization cycle of the EtO sterilizer(s) with an approved portable infrared gas analyzer.
  • Calibration and Certification of your installed VAPOR-TRAK® Ethylene Oxide gas alarm system. This only applies to existing customers of this product.
  • An exhaust ventilation study to determine that the minimum 10 exhaust air changes per hour is functioning as required by equipment manufacturers, state and federal guidelines are met.
  • Determine overall room pressure differentials at doorways, to ensure the required negative pressure is present to adjoining rooms.
  • Provide mechanical drawings and color photographs of the surveyed areas.
  • Identify potential problems and make practical recommendations for the health and safety of employees.














OSHA recommends such safety surveys be performed periodically based upon equipment, procedural, personnel or seasonal changes.  Therefore, we suggest that this testing be performed at least on a semiannual basis.

There is increasing emphasis from OSHA, JCAHO, ASHRAE, AAMI and other regulatory agencies regarding workplace exposure to toxic chemicals.  Kem Medical Products has been proudly servicing the healthcare industry since 1980 and would like to be your healthcare facility's partner, helping you to provide a safe work environment.
