Hazards and Protection.
Keep container closed when not in use. Store in a tightly closed container. Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area away from incompatible substances.
Wash thoroughly after handling. Remove contaminated clothing and wash before reuse. Use only in a well ventilated area. Avoid contact with eyes, skin, and clothing. Keep container tightly closed. Avoid contact with heat, sparks and flame. Avoid ingestion and inhalation.

In case of fire use water spray, dry chemical, carbon dioxide, or appropriate foam.
Animal studies have reported that fetal effects/abnormalities may occur when maternal toxicity is seen. Laboratory experiments have resulted in mutagenic effects.
May cause gastrointestinal irritation with nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.
Causes irritation of the mucous membrane and upper respiratory tract.
Causes skin irritation. May cause an allergic reaction in certain individuals.
Causes moderate eye irritation.
Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Get medical aid. Do NOT induce vomiting. If conscious and alert, rinse mouth and drink 2-4 cupfuls of milk or water.
