Section 4 - First Aid Measures

 

ORAL EXPOSURE

If swallowed, wash out mouth with water provided person is conscious. Call a physician immediately.

 

INHALATION EXPOSURE

If inhaled, remove to fresh air. If not breathing give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen.

 

DERMAL EXPOSURE

In case of skin contact, flush with copious amounts of water for at least 15 minutes. Remove contaminated clothing and shoes. Call a physician.

 

EYE EXPOSURE

In case of contact with eyes, flush with copious amounts of water for at least 15 minutes. Assure adequate flushing by separating the eyelids with fingers. Call a physician.

______________________________________________________________ Section 6 - Accidental Release Measures

 

METHODS FOR CLEANING UP

Ventilate area and wash spill site after material pickup is complete. Absorb on sand or vermiculite and place in closed containers for disposal.

 

Section 7 - Handling and Storage

 

HANDLING

User Exposure: Avoid inhalation. Avoid contact with eyes, skin, and clothing. Avoid prolonged or repeated exposure.

 

STORAGE

Suitable: Keep tightly closed.

Store at 2-8 degrees C

 

Section 8 - Exposure Controls / PPE

 

ENGINEERING CONTROLS

Safety shower and eye bath. Mechanical exhaust required.

 

PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT

Respiratory: Use respirators and components tested and approved under appropriate government standards such as NIOSH (US) or CEN (EU). Where risk assessment shows air-purifying respirators are appropriate use a full-face particle respirator type N100 (US) or type P3 (EN 143) respirator cartridges as a backup to engineering controls. If the respirator is the sole means of protection, use a full-face supplied air respirator.

Hand: Compatible chemical-resistant gloves.

Eye: Chemical safety goggles.

 

GENERAL HYGIENE MEASURES

Wash thoroughly after handling. Wash contaminated clothing before reuse.
