Hazards and Protection.
Storage
To be stored under air rather than an inert atmosphere. Temp must be kept low to minimize formation of peroxides and other products. The acrylic esters may be stored in mild or stainless steel, or aluminum.
Protection
Protection required for safe handling of acrylic acid and esters commonly includes use of impervious gloves, shoe soles, and clothing; splash-proof goggles
Respirators
Use a self-contained respirator. Protective apparatus should be available for use of those who may have to rescue others.
Incompatibilities
Keep away from oxidizing materials.
Decomposition
When heated to decomposition it emits acrid smoke and irritating fumes.

Exposure effects
   Ingestion
Ingestion can result in cardiovascular collapse, severe respiratory insufficiency, CNS stimulation or depression, and seizures.
   Inhalation
May cause drowsiness, nausea, headache, extreem irritation, noncardiogenic pulmonary edema and seasures. Possible carcinogen.
   Skin
Can cause severe burns.
   Eyes
Can cause severe burns.

First aid
 
   Ingestion
Do NOT induce emesis. Consider gastric lavage after ingestion of a potentially life-threatening amount of poison if it can be performed soon after ingestion (generally within 1 hour). Protect airway by placement in Trendelenburg and left lateral decubitus position or by endotracheal intubation. Control any seizures first. Activated charcoal or dilution with milk or water should also be considered.
   Inhalation
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 inhaled beta2 agonist and oral or parenteral corticosteroids.
   Skin
Remove contaminated clothing and wash exposed area thoroughly with soap and water. A physician may need to examine the area if irritation or pain persists. Treat dermal irritation or burns with standard topical therapy. Patients developing dermal hypersensitivity reactions may require treatment with systemic or topical corticosteroids or antihistamines.
   Eyes
Irrigate exposed eyes with copious amounts of room temperature water for at least 15 minutes. If irritation, pain, swelling, lacrimation, or photophobia persist, the patient should be seen in a health care facility.
