Hazard assessment of EO has involved consideration of the chemical composition, characteristics, and reactivity of this material. Teratogenic effects of EO are only seen under extreme conditions that render the result questionable. Reproductive effects or minor severity occur only at high levels of exposer. Epidemiological and other studies of occupational exposure to EO in men and women have revealed no substantial evidence of potential to produce cancer in the work place.
