What are examples of standards HESIS has recommended?
HESIS recommended a new standard for an unregulated solvent called 1-bromopropane to protect workers from reproductive damage and nerve damage. In response to new studies on ethylene oxide, a gas used in hospital sterilizers, HESIS recommended that the standard be revised to protect workers from cancer and reproductive damage. Prior to the HESIS recommendation, the ethylene oxide standard only protected workers from respiratory irritation.
