Hazards and Protection.
Keep in a cool, dry location in a tightly sealed container.
Avoid all contact. Material should only be handled by properly trained individuals. Use aprroved OSHA/MSHA safety equipment.
Chemical splash goggles in compliance with OSHA regulations are advised; however, OSHA regulations also permit other type safety glasses. Whre chemical resistant gloves. To prevent repeated or prolonged skin contact, wear impervious clothing and boots.
Use HIOSH/MSHA approved respirator appropriate for exposure of concern.
Evaucate area and ventilate. Wear protective equipment. Absorb on vermiculite or similar material. Sweep up and place in an approved container for disposal. Was contaminated surfaces.
Stable at normal temperatures and pressures.
Strong oxidizing agents.
Toxic and corrosive fumes.
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 agent most appropriate to extinguish fire.
Causes irritation of the eyes, skin and when inhaled. Harmful if swallowed or inhaled or absorbed through the skin. Chronic exposure can cause liver and kidney injury. Prolonged exposure may cause nausea, headache, dizziness and eye damage.
The possible benefit of early removal of some ingested material by cautious gastric lavage must be weighed against potential complications of bleeding or perforation. Activated charcoal activated charcoal binds most toxic agents and can decrease their systemic absorption if administered soon after ingestion. Activated charcoal: administer charcoal as a slurry (240 ml water/30 g charcoal). Usual dose: 25 to 100 g in adults/adolescents.
Move patient to fresh air. Monitor for respiratory distress. If cough or difficulty breathing develops, evaluate for respiratory tract irritation, bronchitis, or pneumonitis. Administer oxygen and assist ventilation as required. Treat bronchospasm with beta2 agonist and corticosteroid aerosols.
Remove contaminated clothing and wash exposed area thoroughly with soap and water. A physician should examine the area if irritation or pain persists. Pesticides - remove contaminated clothing and jewelry. Wash the skin, including hair and nails, vigorously; do repeated soap washings. Discard contaminated clothing. Irritation - treat dermal irritation or burns with standard topical therapy
Irrigate exposed eyes with copious amounts of tepid water for at least 15 minutes. If irritation, pain, swelling, lacrimation, or photophobia persist, the patient should be seen in a health care facility.
