Ethylene poses a dual risk to worker safety; it is extremely toxic with an eight-hour time weighted average of 200ppm. Ethylene is also potentially highly explosive with a Lower Explosive Limit of 2.7% by volume. As its molecular weight is similar to air, ethylene does not rapidly rise and thus can become a breathing zone hazard, thereby introducing another significant safety planning factor. As a result of this complex risk, implementation of layers of protection is necessary to help ensure a safe working environment.
