Notes to Physician:
SECTION 5 - FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES
As in any fire, wear a self-contained breathing apparatus in pressure-demand,
MSHA/NIOSH (approved or equivalent), and full protective gear.
During a fire, irritating and highly toxic gases may be generated
by thermal decomposition or combustion. Use water spray to keep
fire-exposed containers cool. Vapors may be heavier than air.
They can spread along the ground and collect in low or confined
areas. Containers may explode when heated.
Use agent most appropriate to extinguish fire. Cool containers
with flooding quantities of water until well after fire is out.
spray, dry chemical, carbon dioxide, or appropriate foam.
SECTION 6 - ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
Information: Use proper personal protective equipment as indicated
in Section 8.
Absorb spill with inert material (e.g. vermiculite, sand or earth),
then place in suitable container. Avoid runoff into storm sewers
ditches which lead to waterways. Clean up spills immediately,
observing precautions in the Protective Equipment section. Remove
sources of ignition. Provide ventilation.
SECTION 7 - HANDLING and STORAGE
Wash thoroughly after handling. Wash hands before eating. Use
with adequate ventilation. Avoid contact with eyes, skin, and
clothing. Keep container tightly closed. Avoid ingestion and inhalation.
Storage: Store in a tightly closed container. Store in a cool,
dry, well-ventilated area away from incompatible substances.
SECTION 8 - EXPOSURE CONTROLS, PERSONAL PROTECTION
Controls: Facilities storing or utilizing this material should
be equipped with an eyewash facility and a safety shower. Use
adequate ventilation to keep airborne concentrations low. Exposure
Personal Protective Equipment
Wear appropriate protective eyeglasses or chemical safety goggles
as described by OSHA's eye and face protection regulations in
29 CFR 1910.133 or European Standard EN166.
Skin: Wear appropriate protective gloves to prevent skin exposure.
Clothing: Wear appropriate protective clothing to minimize contact
Respirators: A respiratory protection program that meets OSHA's
29 CFR 1910.134 and ANSI Z88.2 requirements or European
Standard EN 149 must be followed whenever workplace conditions
warrant respirator use.
