Viant Medical Inc. of Grand Rapids is currently facing scrutiny from the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) after the company violated ethylene oxide emission levels. Located at 520 Watson St., the company stands less than half of a mile away from Grand Valley State University’s downtown Pew Campus.
On Friday, Jan. 18, all GVSU students received an email from university officials warning them of the increased level of ethylene oxide.
According to information presented by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) of the U.S. Department of Labor, exposure to the gas may cause numerous health problems, which include respiratory problems, dizziness, nausea and headaches. Moreover, the OSHA classifies ethylene oxide as a known carcinogen and cites studies linking it to cases of leukemia and other forms of cancer.
This was not Viant’s first violation of emission levels; according to a report from MLive, the company had multiple previous violations. In July 2018, DEQ personnel cited the facility with the “failure to adequately capture and control ethylene oxide emissions.”
