Hazards and Protection.
Storage
Do not store near feed or food products. Remove or cover foodstuffs before application; protect food preparing equipment, surfaces, and eating utensils from contamination during application.
Handling
All chemicals should be considered hazardous. Avoid direct physical contact. Use appropriate, approved safety equipment. Untrained individuals should not handle this chemical or its container. Handling should occur in a chemical fume hood.
Protection
Avoid contact with eyes, mouth skin, and clothing. Wear rubber or polyvinylchloride gloves and face shield when handling concentrate.
Respirators
Wear positive pressure self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA).
Small spills/leaks
Make no contact with the spilled material. Fully encapsulating, vapor protective clothing should be worn for spills and leaks with no fire. ELIMINATE all ignition sources and ground all equipment. Stop leak if you can do it without risk. A vapor suppressing foam may be used to reduce vapors. Absorb or cover with dry earth, sand or other non-combustible material and transfer to containers. Use clean non-sparking tools to collect absorbed material.
Stability
Stable to hydrolysis in water @ pH 5.
Incompatibilities
Incompatible with strong acids and bases, and especially

Fire.
Fire fighting
Dry chemical, foam, or water.
Fire potential
HIGHLY FLAMMABLE: Will be easily ignited by heat, sparks or flames.
Hazards
Vapors may form explosive mixtures with air. Vapors may travel to source of ignition and flash back. Most vapors are heavier than air. They will spread along ground and collect in low or confined areas (sewers, basements, tanks). Vapor explosion and poison hazard indoors, outdoors or in sewers.
Combustion products
Fire will produce irritating, corrosive and/or toxic gases.

Exposure effects
In severe poisoning, respiratory depression, mental confusion, unconsciousness, brain hemorrhages, and seizures may occur. Children may be more susceptible to seizures than adults. Headache, blurred vision, tremor, paresis, mental depression, coma, delayed neuropathies, various dystonias, weakness, muscle twitching may be noted.
   Ingestion
Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and abdominal cramping have been reported and are common.
   Inhalation
Dyspnea, wheezing, rales, increased bronchial secretions, respiratory muscle weakness and respiratory failure may occur. Usual cause of death is respiratory failure.
   Skin
A possible occupational effect is contact dermatitis. Diaphoresis may be seen after exposure. Cellulitis was seen after injection of household spray.
   Eyes
See inhalation.

First aid
 
   Ingestion
Do not induce emesis. Activated charcoal: administer charcoal as a slurry (240 ml water/30 g charcoal). Usual dose: 25 to 100 g in adults/adolescents.
   Inhalation
Move victim to fresh air. Apply artificial respiration if victim is not breathing. Do not use mouth-to-mouth method if victim ingested or inhaled the substance; induce artificial respiration with the aid of a pocket mask equipped with a one-way valve or other proper respiratory medical device. Administer oxygen if breathing is difficult. Remove and isolate contaminated clothing and shoes.
   Skin
Remove contaminated clothing and jewelry. Wash the skin, including hair and nails, vigorously; do repeated soap washings. Discard contaminated clothing.
   Eyes
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.
